Where do you prefer your GPU / Video Card to exhaust it's heat?

Custom water block. It's the only way. Air cooling just stinks now.

Don't really care which method it uses so long as it works when I plug it in.

In theory stock exhaust fans are supposed to be more than efficient for cooling GPU's but they run hot regardless because they can't exhaust enough heat quick enough. If I'm using air I may as well use a custom cooler like Twin Frozr or something which from my own experience work very well.

All cooling options will work.

Some will work better than others.

But if you spread heat into your case, all you're doing is raising the average case temperature and the nearby components.

If your case has good airflow, then the effect would be negligible.

However, if you don't have good airflow, then you have a whole host of other problems.

I prefer open coolers since they tend to generate less noise than a blower style cooler.

You mean coolers that use normal fans

Or coolers that are passive and use no fans?

Closed coolers may reduce the temp in your case but open coolers are easier to clean. I can't decide which I prefer.

What do you mean by Open Coolers are easier to clean?

All coolers are relatively easy to clean, pop off fan shield / cover, spray with air can.
