I used this on my 2U desktop system I place my monitor on top of. I just want simple quiet basic air cool. I thought that if anything, the video card should be the hot end of the stick. GPU and related use the case cooling instead of the CPU taking a lot too. works just fine. steam, photoshop, lite programming system.
