Default cooling fans for graphic cards

i have recently purchased a gf4 pro/600-8x tv graphic card and there is no cooling fan installed on it! Does anybody know where i can purchase a fan for it? Sending the card back to place of purchase would be best option but it is of inconvience for me to do so! Can any body help?

What? hehe... are you sure that spinny thing you keep glazing at isn't a fan? first of, send it back, i looked it up, that's the mx 440 which should have a fan on it, but if you really don't want to, goto case-mod.com, they have good cooling for VGA cards there, good luck

if all you see is a metal heatsink with rows of fins sticking up where the fan should be that means your card uses passive cooling. not all chipsets need a fan to cool them.

I use a pci slot fan to cool mine (cheap and easy to install).

Hey Demalii,
Is that modding site in the U.S or where????
Cause they have some pretty good stuff and everthing, but i dont really want to order from the U.S or Canada because it costs heaps just getting it over here.
