How do I use the Nvidia GTX 480 ducting and what is the best solution for nVidia certified cooling?

There are 3 major components of the GTX 480, GTX 470 SLI-certification: The GPU duct, the side fan duct and the GPU duct fan. The GPU duct fan requires a extremely high airflow 150cfm fan with at least a 120x38mm specification. This specification was developed by nVidia. Adding a similar high performance fan will also achieve the same cooling effects. To install with 3-way SLI, first remove all the components. Mount the cards, and install the GPU duct, GPU duct fan, then the side panel with 200mm duct. The GPU holder can be used instead of the side fan duct, but will not meet the nVidia engineered requirements for cooling.
