    I noticed how hot the heatsink on my 3DFX Voodoo 3 2000 pci card was getting so I decided to remove it ,but now I'm wondering where I can get another vga chipset cooler from,that will be able to fit properly on my card.:?:

    Dood! those 3Dfx's get hot -- so one thing you don't want to do is remove the heatsink til you have a replacement.

    And even then, it still gets hot?

    No, you have no power on your card.

    I've got the stock heatsink on my 3000 - gets hot, runs great.

    I'm not runing it right now I can wait forever as I don't need the card in any computer right now,but the heatsink is a P.O.S., when I press the heatsink against my forehead it dosen't feel cool like most do so I took it off cause it $ux. I'm gona go get a copper cooler, but which one can I buy to run off of a regular power cord?:?:

    The Crystal Orb has a standard 3 pin mobo fan connector on it. I can be powered from the mobo or you could use a 3 pin to molex adapter and connect it to a psu connector just like the one on your hd and cds.
