Coolermaster Mystique ATX Case Review
Can the Mystique combine a good look pre-mod with useful features and excellent cooling? We examine Coolermaster's latest in detail in this review.

I noticed that you mentioned that you placed a fan to help cool down the video card. Can you please show me how you did it. I did not see how this was done. I have ordered the Mystique (still can't decide what is better black or silver). I noticed a few sites that have reviewed the Mystique and they also mentioned the heat issue as well. I am thinking of making a gaming machine with dual video cards. Did you do anthing different to attache the fan? Please let me know.

jmke, I think you'd definitely notice a difference in CPU temps if you had not got the CPU vent there (especially with that blow-down style CPU HSF). Is the vent duct extendable (looks like it is)?
With the GPU vent on my Antec SLK I found blocking it actually lowered all my overall temps due to preventing airflow short-circuits but if you have a hot GPU to cool....
gponcho, I'd think you'd manage to mount the 92mm fan on that grille no problem. There are enough holes to put screws through!

Below the opening where the blowhole is mounted, a 9cm fan, fits exactly, so anyone can place a fan there.
Any silent one will do, I used a 9cm Noiseblocker SE2 @7V
If I use a 9cm Vantec Tornado the Coretemp is around 5 degrees lower, when compaired to my Noiseblocker SE2.
There won`t be any real impact on a direct intake versus a good airflow through the system.
