Thread: Very easy way to cool of the back side of your video card!

    Well, I have been surfin for the past few months trying to find a decent solution to cool the back side of my Ti4400. Well, I think I found the cheapest and easiest way.

    I was looking through my junk pile and I saw a retail HSF from a amd 900mhz... I took the fan off and realized that the black mount for the fan might work. See below for what I am talking about. The pic is a 1.4 retail HSF but it shows you what I mean.

    After removing the mount, my thoughts became clear. This mount has four clips on each side to to attach the mount to the HS. Cool, I could use the clips as Stand-Offs.


    So, out came the 5min Epoxy! I just used just a dab per side.


    After the Epoxy had cured, it was a matter of screwing in the four screws. As you can see below, the fan has enough clearance to blow down and outwards to cool of the memory chips also.


    Well, I guess I found a use for my AMD retail fan. I just hope I never have to RMA this sucker in :)

    This just shows the clearance that the fan mount has.

    yea actually u don;t necassarily need the bracket to attch the fan on a leadtek...u can just use peices of rubber for example to give the fan a bit of clearance.......with a hot glue gun on maybe even super glue.....this is all thx to the inspiration from hbi dad:afro:

    and thx to all of you for adding your ideas:cheers:
