My System Specs

Default Check your airflow sir?????

I was having problems with my new vid card and was just about to RMA it when I decided to try one last thing by adding a side fan just in case it was an airflow issue.

Wouldn't you know it.... all of my issues seem to have gone away.

Seems the newer cards are a lot longer than previous ones, & this one was blocking airflow to the lower mobo/bottom of the vid card.

Amazing what a difference a $15 fan can make!
