I have decided to get a slot fan to fit directly below my evga 7600GT. I want the best fan possible in terms of cooling ability and quietness. Any recommendations that I can attempt to price match?

as far as slot fans are concerned, ive only ever used one, and I just purchased the cheapie off of newegg. Of course, I wasnt using it for anything heavy duty-just had a build reusing a old HP Micro ATX case, and simply needed another exhaust fan. Didnt even have a dedicated video card in it. Personally, If I were to recomend something see if you can find one made by coolermaster, every coolermaster fan of any type ive ever used has never let me down.

I only have a 7600GT, I assume the fan below would be more relevant if I had a 8800GT or 9800?

I guess I could purchase it now and it would be ready for, when I finally get a video card that can handle GTA4. As of right now, I am being told that the startech will bring my GPU temp -10C: whereas, the Zalman that is 6x higher priced, will bring my temps down on average -20C. Might as well stick with the cheap one for now.

Ten deg. C is a bunch. I agree with the_patriot09 cool it. It will work better and longer. I know of nothing in a computer that doesn't like cool.

This might sound a little simple but it works for me. Remove your side panels and use them to make temp-lets out of cardboard. At this point you can cut holes/vents and put fans blowing in or out, installed the temp-lets on you case and test the inside case temps. Once you get the temp you should have you can make the computers side panels the way it works best with out guessing.

I finally got around to purchasing the startech cooler. Here are the comparisons from old to new:

[sidenote] I was not able to put the slot fan directly under the 7600GT because there was a USB ports wire that was in the way so I put the startech fan in the slot 3 and my 7600GT would be in slot 1 (slot 2 is empty).

Old - New(in degrees Celsius)
GPU: 53-50
CPU: 28-25
AMbient: 31-28
Remote: 43-40
HD0: 35-30
HD1: 36-30
Temp1: 40-40
Core: 29-27
Core: 53-50
Ambient: 0


Conclusion: I need to remove the wire connecting the usb ports to the motheboard to another location and put the startech fan directly beneath the 7600GT. It is not much of an improvement because the PC is much more nosier now. Although, I should probably get used to this noise because I do plan on building my own budget gaming rig soon to play GTA4 and other games.
