My System Specs


I've seen the slot cards that either just blow internal air at a GPU, or bring it in from the back (back is usually a bad idea).
I find the fans are too "short" and aren't anywheres near the fan of the GPU.. so it just blows air at the front of the heatsink and overall doesn't do too much.

You're better off trying to get more air flow in your case. Either by upgrading your system fans (and exaust too, very important for airflow) or, getting a directional duct for an intake fan, and pointing it at your GPU. If you can put a fan on your side panel, that would work too - although I personally don't like them because of having to disconnect the fan when you take the side off.

I'll learn to manage my anger, when people learn to manage their stupid.
