Default Gigabyte 3d1 Dual core Nvidia 6600gt.

rite .... so ive got a Gigabyte 3d1 Dual core Nvidia 6600gt, and the fans on the actual card are a bit on the noisy side. Can anyone make a suggestion as to what fans i should use....bearing in mind the layout of the card and the holes that hold the heatsink......

the Zalman VF900 fits just about every card. I've got one on my 7900 GT.

I dont think you can change them, becuase a new cooler would never fit on the board between the chips. Maybe save for a new card, with a quiet cooler!

missed that.
If anything, you'd probabbly have to use two coolers (one for each GPU)
and they'd have to be small, so they can both fit on the card.

Just replace the current paste with as5, clean out fan, and set fan speed to whatever doesnt annoy you in rivatuner. That should help some what.
