    Arrow Quiet fan for Ti4200

    I have invested in a shuttle cube to tyr and make my computer more of a multimedia center as it were, but find that it is too noisy to work with effectivley. After investigating i found out that about 75% of the noise is the tiny whirring fan on my gainward geforce 4 ti4200 that I have. I was wondering how you guys would suggest i shut this up, im willing to spend money to do it, but the only problem is being in a cube (and with a tv card in teh pci slot) i dout there is room for a big heatsink thing... anyone knwo a solution cos im lost!

    help gratfully appreciated

    You could put a small-ish CPU heatsink/North bridge cooler on there, and have a 80mm Liquid bearing fan blowing down on it in between the gap of gf4 and tv card. Or you could get a Thermal take cooper heat sink and leave the fan unplugged. not sure how well it work work....

    , cant really think of anything else. Save a watercooling set-up. dont know if that would work.

    btw - i have tried my Gainward GF4 with the TT cooler, without the fan on. it was ok. Got into windows fine.....but it could just be money down the drain.....

    The TT copper GF4 fan is miles quieter than some standard fans as it's bigger and spins slower, so defo worth a go, you can even run it @ 7v to be near silent.

    I've been running my ti4200 (clocked to 301 core) with it's fan having stopped working. My solution, crude but very successful was to cable tie (to the card) an 80mm fan so it's at a slight angle over the heatsink and have it on my fan controller. Works a treat - you could have the fan at 7v - that's my £1 solution

    Passively cool it with a ZM17-CU like I did. Makes zero noise then
