So here is the end result:





Yup, now that is ghetto ^^^^^^^ Post em up!!
Can you explain step by step how you did that? It is very annoying to use a connector. I heard someone done a inverter that can power 4 cathodes at the same time but used a bigger box. I don't know how people do that. I keep thinking a fan controller switch is easier lol.

Is this ghetto enough? 120mm fan zip tied to my GPU heatsink

I actually use those little sandwich bag ties now because I had to take it apart and didn't have any zip ties D

My latest ghettomod
I've done alot of ghetto stuff, but none have really been significant. I like my latest one, though, where I attached an AMD K6 CPU fan to my GeForce 4 MX 440. It works quite well, it used to be hot after running for a while, but now even after running overnight, it's cool to the touch. I'm going to try to aim a second fan at my CPU's heatsink now. Screwing around last night, I almost got it working, but the fan wasn't aimed right (and in fact was held in my case by electrical tape >.< wish I had pictures)

Anyway, here it is:


What's really ghetto, I attached the fan to the heatsink by screwing into the spaces between the fins on the heatsink.

Yes, that is a raised hole in some cardboard for an optical drive mount, and yes, that is a removable motherboard tray.

(Sorry for the last pic... I was spasming while talking it. >.<)
