Taking off the cover and fans, reveals two indented areas on the heatsink. Grind down some of the frame of a 80mm fan housing it should fit. Probably use some take or glue to hold the fans on.
Thanks for your thoughts on this. I did see this (Link Below) online but not sure if anyone has had success with it but I have not researched the forums yet. It does look promising though!
I really like this card as it plays BFBC2 very well and my RMA'd 5830 wouldn't play it even at the lowest settings!!! BTW I just got the tracking number on it from MSI and it states "Replaced" but not sure if it is with another 5830 or not. I assume so, but I complained about its perfomance enough that who knows?
Here is what i am considering for my fan noise: http://www.arctic-cooling.com/catalo...ath=2_&mID=619
Hopefully posting a link is allowed as I am not trying to sell anything.
Let me know what you think.
