Hey guys - I'm new here

I'm working on a near-silent build in an old HP case. I chose it because it currently has the LEAST airflow of any case I can find - it only has 1 exhaust port (no side panel, or front intake). My hope is that this will improve airflow via my passive radeon 6770 (silent cell - air-intake is at the back of the case)


Can I balance my card's heat with the noise level of the machine, or am I crazy for trying to cool a passive card in a case with only 1 exhaust fan?

I would worry about trying to cool a case who's air has come in over the cooler of the GPU. If the exhaust is big enough, it will keep it cool, but I think you might sacrifice some quietness.
