Two questions, can someone show me how this is done? I don't understand what ^ meant by "screwing" in a fan. As in..how is it done?<br />
<br />
The other thing is..adding ram heatsinks to the videocard or other parts..does it void the warranty?

</div>I think he means that the fan on top of the BT will blow air down onto the RAM sinks so that they'll cool off. Adding RAM HS might void your warrenty but you can always take them off if your ever going to send them in for a replacement or RMA or whatever <img src="/images/smilies/thumb.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Thumb" class="inlineimg" /><br />

Here's the base of the Gigabyte G Cooler Pro:<br />

I'm guessing he stuck the ramsinks onto the base, and screwed a small fan to the ramsinks already stuck onto the base. As you can see there is lots of room for a fan to fit below all those bigger aluminum fins.

I know where and how he put the ram heatsinks. But how does he get the fan on?<br />
<br />
A side thing...when you add fans, how do you power them on? I think you have to plug it in somewhere in the mobo but are there that many "outlets" on the mobo for that?

</div>Either plug them in a 3 pin or a molex. You get the fan onto the BT by screwing the 4 screws on on top.

Just to clarify..I don't mean the fan that is suppose to be equiped with the Typhoon but another fan somewhere else.

Once the ramsinks are properly adhesed onto the base of the heatsink (they don't move around), you can easily just attach a fan by screwing the screws into the grooves of the ramsinks you stuck to the base. <br />
Need me to clarify anymore?

Wow...basically just get the screws to get stuck in there so the fan will stay?

Yup, that's also what most people do when they want to attach a fan to a passive northbridge heatsink, just screw 'em into the grooves. Or they use zipties...

You should get a heatsink and fan kit and in it should come a few different molex type connectors to power the fan.The fan is not necessary if you don't want it there.I just gave it a try for something to do because it was collecting dust in my spare parts drawer.
