Default Re: The ghetto mod thread

Dammit. Shattered my GPU's fan when cleaning it today. Don't stop the moving train.

Ended up using zip ties to attach a standard 80mm fan to the shroud. I suspect I still needed to use the shroud (it's one of those dual slot Radeons). The zip tie's ratcheting head wouldn't go through the fan screws or the thin slots I was abusing on the shroud so I didn't need to stick the end into the ratchet head, nor was it long enough anyway.

Sorry no pictures ... yet... question is whether I can find a half height 12mm thick replacement 80mm fan with screw holes 90mm diagonally apart, instead of the typical 100mm diagonal 25mm thick fan that's currently ghetto-attached for now...

GPU is at 60C ...
