My System Specs

Default Added a fan to my auzentech forte

Lucky for my card I bought a PCI extension cable so my auzentech doesn't cook between my 6950s. And my case is a TV stand so I have the card suspended up above the flat laying MB. And I finally remembered to fit a 80-90mm fan over it, powered off a 5V molex. I have the fan right over its heatsink and bunch of capacitors. Hope it does the job.

My System Specs

Default

no cameras

the card is hanging sideways from a twist tie, and the PCI cable at the bottom

and the fan is "tied" onto it with individual wires from an old IDE cable...at 5V it barely makes a breeze, if might try all 12V but only if its quiet. I have another fan I could try if its noisy....or I could buy another 90mm fan just for this.

STAY COOL PC PARTS
