haven't you heard, duck tape can fix anything? and is your best friend..



haha


anywyaz. i would just get a card cooler, but if you really wanted to, once i got some thick foam double stick tape, so the fans stands off the ground, and taped the four sides on the top of the card.

and once due to the fact there were holes on the edges of my card i tied a fan suspeneded from those holes on the side, so the the card and the fan are perpendicular and the fan blows across the card.

You could buy a PCI slot fan cooler for about 8 dollars, or just mount an 80mm/120mm fan directly under it, on the bottom of your case

I have a glue that's similar to hot glue but it come in a tube. Its called 'ShoeGoo'.
I mount my fans on the case. I rather not physially attach to the hardware if at all possible. Best thing is if you need to move it, your just yank on it and force the hard glue off the case/fan.

I believe that's what I'm going to do. The fans will hover above the card. Although, I'd rather use 120mm fans...

When I get around to doing it I'll post pictures.
