Regarding GeForce GTX 560Ti video cards.

Is there a reason you need the exhaust or do you just prefer it?

I prefer it.

My one doesn't run hot even when I'm gaming on full settings, but it does exhaust a lot of the air out the back.

I have a friend who has a 560GTX Ti MSi Twin Frozr. Not audible. Descent temperatures in game and fast to boot. I'd recommend this card to anyone wanting a 560. I'd say the temperatures are lowered by the cooling in his case quite a bit though. He has an NZXT Phantom with almost all the fans in.

I looked on a couple of websites and all the available ones I saw vented into the case at least partially. Side mounted fans in the middle or dual / triple fans all vent into the case
The ones with the other style of fan (I don't know what they are called) mounted at the front end of the card vent to the rear.

For example http://www.computerlounge.co.nz/components/componentview.asp?partid=16188 vents into the case and http://www.computerlounge.co.nz/components/componentview.asp?partid=16223 vents out the rear.

After having heat problems with GTX460's in SLI due to venting into the case I try to get rear venting ones myself, but it seems like the cheaper models are hard to find with this design, almost like they don't really want us to use SLI with them.

It's the Asus GTX560Ti TOP 900mhz 1GB DirectCU II.

Yes thats what I was finding too.
Currently have a HD 4870 rear venting.
System runs cool & quiet.

The MSI Twin Frozr is high on my short list, also the Palit Sonic.
Would just like to know where the hot air goes first.

Oh sorry must have missed this post.

I did have that one the list but one review said it vented inside.

That's the one. It does vent out to the rear but it's certainly not airtight, so some of the air is 'leaked' back into the case.

So? Make sure the case has decent airflow.

Exactly. If you're worried about warmer air in your case, you might want to think about getting an intake fan or an extra exhaust fan. What model is your case? Are you planning on running SLI sometime in the future?

Sorry to disagree Jareemon, but although that card does have a rear vent it is not designed for all the air to come out it. It largely vents into the case (not leakage, just the way it's designed).
There is no way for that style of fan to rear vent properly, especially when there is more than one or it is mid mounted and they depend on reasonable case airflow to deal with the heat.
It is also a bad design for SLI or crossfire use, especially when there is no air gap between cards.

My 580 is exactly the same, just bigger. But I don't have issues in my case either. As long as you have at least one good exhaust fan on your case it should be fine, but I do prefer the rear venting design myself (like the card I linked as an example earlier).

Not sure on the case model, std ATX size.
Front intake & rear exhaust 120mm.
They are 3 wire fans conected to the motherboard & very seldom get above an idle.
Very seldom hear the GPU either except when starting up.
If the GPU was venting directly into the case the fans would have to work a bit harder & make more noise.

This could be the one I am looking for.
