I would still try and set up the cooler to take in cold outside-of-the-case air...  there is no harm in trying, you can always flip it back

Your the second person  whos mentioned that. The problem is this card puts out so much heat its literally like a hair dryer,no exaggeration. Setting this up as intake would dump an enormous amount of heat into my case.

That's what a top exhaust fan is for.

One top exhaust fan is not going to offset putting that much heat in to the case.

I really think he should try setting up the radiator completely outside the case & see if it runs cooler (just leave the side of the case partially off or something & try it)
