    If you change the cooler to pull air into the case it will just suck in the rising heat from the gpu exhaust.
    All i can think off is more intake from the front of the case since you already did the side panel mod. Not much you can do to increase airflow in that case.

    Not a lot to be done unless i take it around the back of the yard and give it a blast with one of these

    [​IMG]

    which will most likely result in me needing to pay for a new case anyway (obviously id strip all my gear out before shooting at the case)

    Depends where from...
    £150 seems too steep for a 470 - I just paid £115 for mine and it was only 3 months old.

    Well, I did get mine from a TPU member so that's probably why it was cheap. You'd no doubt get more on the bay for it.
    Where are you planning on getting the 570 from? Not one of the OCUK refurb's I hope :laugh:

    I'm not urinating on what your incinerating but my last 470 was £170 odd retail.
    first was £240 :eek:
    second was around £200 i think
    The prices may hit a resurgence due to lack of availability other than on the bay so you may be lucky for someone desperate to SLi there existing one.
    GLWS though

    this seems like a good deal as the block retails £70 on its own.
    I'd shoot for a second 470 than another gpu with same amount of vram

    I had to change the whole exhaust system off my mrs motor yesterday and the arseholes who owned her car before had welded all 3 joints AND welded the main bolts to the downpipe.
    RAGE doesnt quite cover half of what i was enduring...i got it done in the end with just a pair of spanners and a whole heap of swearing,mean looks,aspersions casted on parentage and finger waggling haha

    hows things your end?

    Find me an 570 for 195 and I will buy it from a shop, the ones in OCUK are slightly dearer and they have been on pre order for a while as I looked last week.

    why go for a 570 when you already have a 470?

    Cause its as fast as a 480, runs cooler and I can upgrade without spending too much factoring in selling my 470.

    £195 is a great price for a 570. I'd snap it up.

    point taken, thing is buying from shops is a waiting game, i can get you a 560 and a gaming keyboard for £150 together but that cards not as good as the 570 -->https://secure.scan.co.uk/aspnet/Shop/AddToBasket.aspx?WebProductId=1587423

    EDIT:You didn't put one of the new cover sheets on your TPS Reports did you?

    I hate motors like that lol my little brother bought a 106 with a pair of speakers fitted into the rear seats. Yes, actually fitted into the rear seats! It was murder on your spine sitting in that thing even without the music on. Needless to say, it was a right f*cker to work on!

    I'm all good cheers man - Swale just finished all their shizzle so I can finally have a bath! the other half's out with the kids today and I really wanted to go to the pub but the bloody gasmen decided to make an half hour job last three f*cking hours :mad:

    Oh well, time to blaze some tunes with excessive volume.

    haha Excellent,rock it till the err windows fall out :D

    My mate had a mini with a pair of rockford 10s bolted onto the back of the seats with cutouts so they fired against the cushions,so there was no back support and one helluva kick from those little things,damn junglists!your ears were about 6 inches away from 1200w of sub wherever you were :rolleyes:
    Showers are great for cleaning quickly but a bath is unbeatable for easing muscle/back pains..
    I think the mind can relax so its the best place to come up with inventions too

    We had the gas man round a month or two ago for the annual check,our heating is temperamental at best but we got it under manners,then the gas man comes and the pilot won't fire every other day:banghead:
    bunch of goodfornothingjobsworthtosspottery :rant:

    Nice price for a 570 how do they compare to the 6950?
    haha my mum was complaining about how much of a dust magnet my case is, luckily the filters do work because the dust collected at the front and not much in the case.

    I think i just got new neighbour yeah im pretty sure so hopefully they are awrite.

    EDIT: I still have no idea what Cheesy is jabbering on about.

    570 is slightly better, 6950 can be purchased for £180 new though and if you get one that unlocks

    EDIT:You seriously don't know the movie
    one last hint before i give it away -->[​IMG]
