    CMCHomer You ought to be able to get that Ti 4200 higher than that. What kind of case cooling do you have? (PS mine runs at 295/630 without any problems)

    At the moment i have just the standard case cooling. I will be doing some modding as soon as i find out more info on installing fans . On my mobo i have only two points to install fans 1 for system and 1 for cpu and they are both taken. What i need to know is can you install a fan from the main power eg : the same plug that plugs into your HDD and cdrom`s etc....


    Once i know i can start cuting some holes and adding fans . The Gforce 4 also just has a standard fan so i wil look at a fan for that aswell. Trying to find somewhere in Adelaide that sells Thermal Take 7+ over the counter but so far no one has any :(

    So thats my dilema ......


    The saga will continue :)

    In fact, you do not want to add auxillary fans anywhere but through the HD connectors. Get fans with the 4 prong connectors. You can burn out the MB by attaching a fan that draws too much juice. Most suppliers (see the home page of Tweaktown for an excellent choice for fans) will alert you to get a four pin adapter if the fan comes with a 3 pin connection but draws too much power for the motherboard. I recommend that you take no chances with it.

    Stores never have the good products... and if they do they usually charge an arm and a leg (at least they do here :().
