Adding another fan but don't have a mount - Page 4

post #31 of 36
well you can do that with a normal flex (http://www.sax-online.de/shop/bild/flex_1109.jpg)

i guess or hope you are getting another tower when you buy the new stuff, so just cut holes in it

Its idle lol
Yikes! 105c is the max non-damaging temp according to nvidia for that gpu. I wouldn't give it that full 105 before it starts acting up on you though.

Here's something you can try before you start hacking stuff up and buying fans. Do you have a box fan or a desk fan?

If so, grab it and stick it right up against the side of your case, with the side panel removed, so the air if blowing straight onto the mobo/gpu/cpu.

Try using the computer like that, and see if you still crash. If it still crashes, id look into replacing the PSU. If it doesnt crash, its time to start cutting

(in case you arent familiar with the terms: box fan, desk fan)

Check if Antec Illusion is available from newegg (if you are USA) $45 with promo code, comes with 4 fans.

If you want to mod what tools do you have access to?
Dremel, drill, aviation snips (wiess), files, hole saws?
