Sean Kagan says:

such a good channel… nothing is unexplained or untouched, everything you say is sticking to the point of the video, and if you have an opinion about something you say it’s an opinion so it doesn’t affect the viewers (to good or bad) which is great.

GamerOnABudget says:

you forgot to say the blower style is great for sff pc’s and htpc case or mini itx where they need to exhaust the hot air.

Krothens Yay says:

im planning to put together air cooling only config to my cm n200 (micro atx / mini tower) case… I would replace all of my CM case fans with Noctua PWMs (2 120s in the front, 1 at rear exhaust, 1 at top exhaust plus a Noctua cpu cooler (perhaps DH 15)…

My question is: This is perhaps overkill for air cooling, but which gpu cooler benefit best?
Rephrase: Most prefer blower style for mini towers, but with high positive air flow, would aftermarket benefits best?

Rompastompa71 says:

Man, you are a genius! You answered every question about my dilemma.

toontownlegomaster says:

Mahin Ahmed says:

Im thinking about putting a gtx 1060 in my pc but the problem is there is only 1 fan comes with my chasing which is at the back,, and i have fans with processor and power supply ofcourse..( and there is vents at the side and back) now the issue is should i worry about that fact that there mayn’t be enough cooling for my gpu??
