Hey guys!

I recently built my first computer (http://pcpartpicker.com/user/rushrage/saved/1Yo6), and I'm am really enjoying it so far!

But my GPU get really hot while playing some games, so I was wondering if I could take off one of my side panels (till I get some more fans)?

I'm guessing this would cause more dust to build up? How would you clean this?

Thank you so much!

What temps is the card hitting?

Generally removing the side hurts airflow and won't make a difference. How many fans and in what orientation do you have?

51 is cool. Don't worry unless it goes up past 70. people would kill for their GPU to run that cool. You have no problems at all.

I would not worry about it.

http://anandtech.com/bench/product/829 there you can see that their test card hit 80 degrees and never shut down. You are perfectly fine. Don't worry about anything.
