PostSubject: replacing the cooler on your graphic card   Thu May 17, 2007 1:13 am

just picked up a 9800pro card on ebay for a very nice price,only thing wrong with it is that the fan was siezed and needed replacing. the stock ones are abit noisey any way and there are kits out there to replace the heatsink and fan
found this company with the product i was looking for ( even sent them a e-mail and had a reply within the hour ) http://www.quietpc.com/gb-en-gbp/home

this is the one i'm getting http://www.quietpc.com/gb-en-gbp/products/ati-vga/vf700

and this is an example of how to do it http://www.xlr8yourmac.com/Graphics/VGA_silencer_install/VGA_silencer_install.html

received the kit on friday, 1st impression was "o my god" thats to big it will never fit.

so today i removed the old heatsink,cleaned the chip,followed the instructions (which were excellent ) and fitted the new heatsink and fan assembly and all the heatsinks supplied for all the cards other chips. it fitted perfect,very easy, even came with a splitter power cable to run high or low speed. on saying that your psu must have enough power leads as the card needs one plus the new heatsink and fan needs another
if i get a chance some photos
