R8 GPU Upgrade Blower vs. Open Air

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

There's a lot of conflicting info on this online so I wanted to ask the experts: I have an Aurora R8 (w/ water cooled CPU) and want to upgrade to either a 2070S or a 2080 (Ti). However, I'm concerned about whether or not to get a blower style or axial card.


The latter seems to fit better in the case and would probably run quieter, but the case intake blows air into the same space as the GPU would exhaust into as well. But blower cards also naturally tend to run hotter and louder, not to mention there's not many that would fit in the small clearance ofgood blog 
the case. I don't have much knowledge about this so if anyone has any experience/input, I'd appreciate it.
