running graphics card with secondary cooling

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
so the fan on my 9600 gt completely died and i cant seem to find replacement parts anywhere. This is for a HTPC so all it really does is play hd movies which doesn't really put it under load. Would i be fine just taking the fan out and putting a pci slot cooler or a Antec spot cool directly next to the heatsink? Any help would be much appreciated

That method would probably work if all you do is run movies. I'd remove the shroud to expose the heatsink though.
