    So I was wondering if anyone know a better fan for the P1xx/ P3xx series. So far the airflow is mediocre at best. even the tiny CPU fan pushes a lot more air out.

    I'm a person who likes his temps really low, but my GPU is just to high:

    I did some mods on the heatsink which are now near percetion, however the poor airflow due to the bad fan ruins is

    I have been thinking the same thing for some time now. Altho since I removed one of gpu's from my P370EM and thermal pads between motherboard and master gpu I can max oc my cpu while reaching high 70's. Slave gpu fan is just there to move some air around and it seems to help a lot.

    Have you considered a vacuum cooler to suck hot air out from the vent?

    Not that I am aware of, the vacuum fan test would let you know if it even helps.

    70 degrees is fine in my view, especially when you consider the 1060 Founders Edition will run hotter than that without being repasted.

    More airflow will also mean more noise and airflow will give diminishing returns.

    Didn't test with a vaccuum, but the airflow is terrible. The fan has a pretty bad design as well, hence it needs replacement. The fans are thick, there aren't many of them and it overall seems like bad design. The P870DM fans for instance have more fans and are curved, they produce about the same noise while having way superior airflow.

    Hope you don't mind :p but what software do you use to display the temps, usage and fps like that?

    It looks way better than RTSS.

    Uhm, it is RTSS :'D

    I Noticed the fan I had was slightly thinner in my P157SM so I gave it a go. The airflow is improved by a little bit and my temps always dropped a little bit on the GPU:

    Oh...RTSS with which software?
    MSI Afterburner?

    I have been using HWMonitor. It's just plain purple text.
