    Well looks like My geforce 4 ti 4400 fan is about to go. I was wondering if there were any guides here to installing a new one ? Also any recommendations for a fan i should go with ? Thx

    I recommend a Thermaltake GF4 Heatsink Unit. It comes with a copper heatsink and fan. And copper memory heatsinks. You can pick one up at www.newegg.com for 8.99 US. It comes with an instruction manual, but all you really need to do is CAREFULLY remove your old fan and heatsink, I had a VisionTek Xtasy Ti4200 which just required some unscrewing. After you get the old heatsink off you just follow the directions of putting a thin layer of thermal paste onto the processor and installing the heatsink, which I believe uses plastic spring spacers. Very easy, you just pop the pastic into where the screws went. The memory heatsinks come with strips of thermal tape. Just put the tape onto the memory and stick the copper to it. Simple process. Let me know how you make out.

    And just in case you're a case modder, they also make a GF4 Heatsink with the CoolMod, which has an LED fan in it instead of a regular fan. Costs a little more, but if you're into that sort of stuff, go for it.

    I agree, not to mention they outperform many other solutions even though they are 100% passive.
