Default PCI fan

Any good?
I am thinking of getting an exhaust and a fan/exhaust, but if they only cool a couple of degrees, then I won't get it. I'll be placing the fan/exhaust between the 8800GT, and the other exhaust below the secondary 8800GT.

I had one a few years back with my 6800GS, I didn't see much of an increase in temps. Also, blower fans get loud quick when you turn them up.

The best thing you could do if you're willing to put forth a little effort would be to cut a hole in the side panel for a fan.

Just tape a fan onto the open PCI slots. idk the people pay for this crap.

Or tape a fan to the front of our cards and open up the slots between. Like so.

I tried that before, except that I didn't know how to attach it, so I taped it on, and it looked bad.

use a rubber band, and make it go around the little screws on the back of the card that poke out.

I'm sorry, but I really doubt that airflow is enough to really change anything. In my eyes these fans are just rip offs.
