Ghetto fan mount for a fanless card

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
So for a short story, my friend needed help putting TIM on his CPU and called me. When I arrived there the computer was running at 65-75c idle and increasing, told him to shut down quickly:mad:. while looking around, I noticed a left alone case in a corner so he showed me the random computer his father picked up. Oh! A old server, it was not working though, but there were perhaps some stuff we could reuse. At the end two HDD still worked and, wait for it ... SAN ACE FANS in total: 1x120 2x92 2x60 were taken and reused on his current Pentium PC.tongue.gif

After cleaning up and putting new MX-2 temps are now about 45c idle. Some basic cable management:rolleyes:

Now one thing bothered us
260054_10150653344975164_831980163_19265022_1412881_n.jpg
We decided to put one of the 60mm fans on it, but how ?

ingredients:

1x 60mm fan
2x Pci bracket
1x cure-tip
7x toothpick
some Dental floss
and finally electrical tape

final result

259917_10150653344745164_831980163_19265020_4498438_n.jpg

you may say ''***, how are they going to put that'' Just wait to see our creativity:cool:

this is how we did it, can't be more homemade than this:lachen:

Basically, the tension of the dental floss on both ends keep it floating with the help of gravity:applaud:

Not bad... Not pretty but 5 points for effort regardless.

This is how you do a real 'ghetto' PCI fan.

Nice job! I removed the stock fan and shroud that came with my HD 4870 back in the days, and fixed, via zip ties, a 90mm fan on top of the 4870 heat sink and dropped my temps greatly and fan noise.
