Zotac GTX 560 TI !Amp edition The way I am cooling this crap
Hi, I just wanted to share pictures of my GTX 560 ti cooling. The reason why I did it this way is a fact that my GTX 560 Ti amp! was running at 84 degrees celcius or even more in stress situations. With current fan setup I manage to get maximum 69 degrees Celsius in stress situations. On side note: I am not a professional at cooling, overclocking or whatever so don't flame at the way I did it :D

I took the gpu case off, because no matter how awesome it looks, I think it doesn't help cooling at all. I added dual fan Evercool Rocket V underneath it and even Antec Spotcool fan below.

Here is my Zalman on CPU and rear exhaust fan.

Here you can see two intake fans, there is one 200mm intake fan on the front of the case and I zip tied 120mm fan inside the case as an intake magnifier.

There are also more awesome ways of cooling, check this link out: [url="http://www.overclock.net/t/1086286/complete-build-log-zotac-560ti-corsair-h70"]My link[/url]

remove the hard drive cage so your fan can give the card air, that cage is not letting enough air through.
download MSI Afterburner so you can set your graphics cards fan at max when gaming.
i have 2 GTX 580's in sli that run cooler then yours.
mine max out at 68c bottom card and 72c top card, top card hotter as the space between the cards is 1 cm

+1 to JLH's suggestion.

If your case has an option for bottom or side then move the one you have lashed to the HDD case there,
and just use the one in the front of the case (or put a larger one in the front position).

I'm not sure removing the shroud on the gpu is a good idea. The shroud should help distribute the air over the fins more evenly.

You could also try pointing the cpu cooler toward the top. Six of one half dozen of the other, but it may help
assuming your RAM heat sinks cooperate.

Don't get too carried away with additional fans. It can create turbulence and be counter productive,
and unnecessarily noisy.

I have a CM690 II case with three fans in - bottom, front, side - and two fans out - top and rear.
I have also removed the lower HDD cage to help flow from the front fan (leaving two HDD bays below the optic drive bays).

Gigabyte GTX560ti (two fans) and a Noctua U9B single fan cpu cooler pointed toward the top exhaust.
My temps stay well with the comfort zone. The gpu will reach 70+ only on the hotter days (Ozzy summer).
I also give my my machine a brief break ever hour or two when playing system intensive games.
It only takes a three-four minutes to cool things back down to idle temps.
