Ive came up with this setup since things got a little hot for the radeon (65°c+ under load)
What I did was get the stock Intel cooler that I didn't use anyway, it has some nice plastic clips so it fits easily at the back of the pc. I put it at 5volt so it's quiet. It blows air into the case.
After this addition the R9700Pro never goes over 54°c under load, and stays at around 48°c under idle.
The CPU (PIV 2.8c) idles at 36°c and under load does about 50°c

As you can see in the last picture:
I pull in air below the Radeon with the Intel stock fan at 5v
I pull in (very little) air from the front with a Papst 80mm 1500rpm fan
I get air out of the case with a same type Papst next to the CPU
I get air out of the case via the Zalman 400watt PSU
The CPU heatsink is a Thermalright 900A with a Enermax 92mm at 1500rpm
I'm not very experienced with setups, but i wish to keep things quiet more and more, I therefore would like some comments on this setup.
