  1. ok i wasnt sure if this goes under cooling or under audio and graphics. But i just got my A97 ati 9700 pro graphics card. It is amazing.

    the thing is its right above 1 of my pci cards. Well im just wondering if the fan is ok. Because the fan has very little clearance on the graphics card board. Shoud i move the pci card so that it has space to breath?

    Personally I would move everything down to give your vid fan room to breathe and cool off. I try not to put anything even close to the top PCI slot, unless I have to. I think others will feel the same way.

    Not a problem, the cooler the better.
