my graphics card got very hot, and I was getting worried that it might not last long (it only has a small heatsink) and with no money I couldn't buy anything. so I found an old power pack that didn't work and took the fan out of it, and I also took the USB port cable from an old mouse, and so I made this, hope you like it =D it is ugly tho, but I didn't want looks, I wanted cooling.

pic 1 is the fan working in my case.

pic 2 is the fan outside the case so you can see what it looks like.

pic 3 is the same as 2 but at a different angle.

enjoy =D

*buying something that is pre-modded :/

Wolf_modius24.11.2006 17:31
modding is about modifing something, not being something thats pre-modded :/

Stupid idea. You should power that fan directly from the supply, USB port is design for more importatnt things.
Even if You want connect multiple fans, You still can buy a cheap molex power divider.

Wolf_modius06.11.2006 23:24
well with USB I can use it for mutliple things =D

shlliekas06.11.2006 23:00

why tF@#K USB??? can't you just connect it to power sup???

Wolf_modius05.11.2006 22:21
well my measurements were just touching the core of the heatsink, without the fan really hot, with the fan it was reli cool, and I can play Counter strike source for hours now =D.......yeh I know im a nerd.....

before: 99 degrees after: 98 degrees? oh, and those arent fahrenheits.. :D

Wolf_modius03.11.2006 19:09
o rite, I didn't look but it certainly cools the heatsink alot!

DanAdamKOF03.11.2006 13:23
I meant temperature before and after adding that fan.

Well...I think if you didn't had any money you could try to temporarily do this...if it works, great...But My advice to soon you can get some money...try to buy a new GPU cooler (the Zalman's are not very expensive these days, it could be something to think about)!! Be cool!! For de funcionality...3/5!
