Default X1900 XT cooling

Planning a SFF build with an ATI X1900 XT, just wondering if the warm air was exhausted out of the grill taking up the extra pci slot or wether the air went out the back of the card into the case?
Need to know because of temps in these cases can get quite ridiculous!

Well, if there's a grill out of the back, I'd assume it is pushing it out. Typically single slot cooling solutions blow air into the case (like most 7800's) and dual slot cooling solutions (most x1---'s) blow air out of the back. If you really want to make sure, just put your hand up to the grill and check!

Yeah, Im preety sure that the grill is there for a reason. So most likely the air is going out the back of the grill.

Yeah most likely its pushing the air out. If you're worried about heat inside ur comp, you might wanna think about putting more fans or consider water cooling.
