Planning to install an air fan to help circulate things around the GTX 460 - Page 3

post #21 of 23
1. Get a Gentle Typhoon AP-13 - very quiet.

2. Attach the fan with Velcro. That comes as two-sided tape or pads. You can reposition or change fans with less hassle. Also, the Velcro naturally dampens fan vibrations.

3. Remove the three unused slot covers nearest your gpu to allow the air to find a way out.

Another fan choice would be a Scythe Slip Stream 1200rpm or 1600rpm - it's what they were made for.

Update, I've had my neighbour look at the GPU, which is now running at 100 degrees for Modern Warfare 2. I have installed a 36 CFM fan on the vent that is at the top of the picture in the previous posts.

He believes it could be the fan design which doesn't seem to have blades at all or the fact that the heatsink is loose. I am going to phone Acer tommorow (as per instructions from Amazon UK) and see if they can replace the system/graphics card.

Should it still give these errors after the replacement, I will ask for a full refund and build it myself or get a different make.
