    I've got one of these cards which is curently gathering dust because I'm afraid to put it into a machine....
    Trouble is, I put it down to fiddel with something else and while I wasn't watching the bloody cat chewed through the cable that connects the fan to the actual card!!! :mad:

    The fan must be there for a reason... but does anyone have an opinion as to whether it's absolutely neccessary for the fan to be functional?

    It's a 32mb AGP version BTW.

    Cheers!

    fan good

    cat bad

    maybe the card dies without it...maybe you have enough circulation to overcome it not working.......can't ya just hook the wires back together?

    you should be able to reconect the wires . but as hairy says if you have good air circulation that card does not run very hot and you should be ok without it , if you do try that , remove the fan from the card first.

    Well thanks.. depending on whose machine the card ends up in and its spec I might try running it without the fan... it will look a bit messy otherwise. Thanks for your advise.
    BTW... here's the culprit: :D
