In this example a had the intake to the side as I had fans in the side cover, but something similar sucking in from the front, with an additional fan blowing at the intakes, should make a nice difference. I'd be interested to see the results if anyone has a go .
Kind of annoying that my mobo forces my two SLI cards to hump each other, so this mod wouldn't work for me.
