yeah i've tryed to have it run at 100% and it still dident cool very much... the card get's way to hot but the only reason i dont really want to get a aftermarket cooler on it is just because i can buy a better card for the same price as the upgraded cooler lol, @darroll but yeah if i was to put my side case on your telling me it'll run cooler... even though it block's basically all the air inside lol

Well then, you'd be better off spending the $39.99 you would be wasting on that "window fan" on a case with better cooling options such as the COOLER MASTER Elite 330
