    Very nice indeed Cliff.
    As for PCI fans, you'll have more luck finding it online.
    Happy new year!
    Thanks, you too:)

    Cliff, Can you mount a regular case fan below the GPU? If so, mount one there blowing directly up into the GPU. Make sure you have a filter below the fan though. If the case doesn't have one, you can buy a magnetic filter real cheap.

    It has a nice slide out filter on the bottom.
    I could mount up to 3 x 120mm fans on the base., I was thinkin of maybe two, for increased air flow.

    Steve the reason is, when I'm benchmarking with Performance Test, I get lower disk scores, because my Samsung 512Gb PM 951 M.2 NVMe SSD sits between my CPU & GPU(NOT a good place for an M.2 slot MSI) and the SSD starts to thermal throttle, so I need to get the heat away from it quicker.

    The Samsung PCIe SSds Have a reputation for doing that.

    Nice water cooling in your case.

    You could move it to an empty slot on your MB ....using something like this adapter. Might work better and cool easier. Will not affect the speed either....this is just an example.

    That was just a pic from In Win of my case and the possible cooling arrangements Steve, I only have fans. Liquid cooling would be too much maintenance for my taste.

    Thanks Mike, I'm hoping better air flow should take care of it. In normal day2day use, it's ok as nothing gets too warm then. But in summer, increased air flow will be better, in any case.

    One thing though with the blue LEDs, the Vengeance LPX Blue RAM, looks black now. I wish the PC came with the Vengeance LED series.

    It works well. When I benchmark(OC'd) with the case closed(I usually open it though), and the CPU jumps to 60+ and the GPU to over 80, the system temps only go as high as 40 + or - 5.
    Don't you typically get better air flow when the case is actually closed? Because the air comes in, circulates through and exits out. With the side off, you lose a lot of that controlled air flow.
