Hiya Japala,
FYI, 'gideonx@gideontech.com' posted a mod suspiciously similar to this one at "http://www.gideontech.com/guides/ccooler/ccooler01.shtml"...

If you check the dates, I did the mod after them. :) If I remember correctly I didn't have an electric drill at the time so I needed to make that card fan without drilling the PCI backplate. I'm not sure if I had seen that mod in Gideontech before I did it but I think that this kind of mod is something that 60 out of 100 persons would come up with if there is a need to cool down the cards.

actually it wouldnt be called Plagiarism, cuz that wasnt copywritten buy either japala or gideontech.com. well i doubt that it was copywritten. Im pretty sure that Plagiarism only applys to written (typed) documents. not mods.

plagiarize, UK USUALLY plagiarise
verb [I or T]
to use another person's idea or a part of their work and pretend that it is your own:

The book contains numerous plagiarized passages.
If you compare the two books side by side, it is clear that the author of the second has plagiarized (from the first).
