Hello,

I'm wanting to upgrade my cooling on my vga card, I was gonig to go with water cooling but it is too much money. So I've found a heatsink that goes on a vga card. Here: http://www.newegg.co...N82E16835109135 I was wondering where would I put a fan on it? I was thinking of this 92mm fan: http://www.newegg.co...N82E16835226006 Would I just mount it right on top of the heat sink touching it or where would be a good location for it? And another thing I'm looking at a vga cooler for my brothers computer and his PC does not have any 3 pin connectors on the motherboard so I was thinking of this one for him: http://www.newegg.co...N82E16835118222 I see it has a connector to plug the 3 pin in and then connect it to your power supply, is that what it is?

Thanks,

Snippy

Hello Snippy,

The fan would mount right on top of the finned heat exchanger. Usually they will include spring clips to accomplish this. The 92mm fan looks fine. Be sure to figure for space in your computer. The fan for your brothers computer would depend upon his video card and space also.

The 3 pin to 4 pin adapters are available at most computer stores. It looks like the one for your brothers setup includes this.


Please be sure to work safe, unplug computer, take your time, and follow manufacturers recommendatons at all times! Remember modifications to video cards void your warranty.

Best of Luck!
