    Right I have a Asus HD4350 with a passive cooler, it was idling at 40c sometimes so I screwed on a fan from an old AMD Head sink, at the moment I have it set to exhausting the air away from the card, how ever I was wondering whether pushing air down/along the passive cooler would be more effective :)

    thanks for the help :D

    By the by I have an Antec 900 case so my PSU ( and thus is fan) are upside down at the bottom, so would that affect anything at all?

    ( thinking the fans would rob each other of air )

    What's ur load temps? If it's higher then 80C push the fan higher.

    No I mean what direction should the fan be blowing, into the heatsink of the GC or away so it sucks hot air away :D
