Default Building a computer and…

I’m building a computer for a friend now it’s a low end system everything went fine but I

Noticed one thing I put a volcano 7+ on the heat sink on the amd and two

fans one in front one in back the system runs pretty cool but his video card doesn’t and

Since he picked up a low end card and asked me to put that in too I figured ok it’s a

e-GeForce MX 4000 64mb here’s the thing the damn thing generates quite a bit of heat it has a

Heat sink on it here’s a picture of it http://www.evga.com/products/moreinf...064-P1-NV91-LX it’s the same one in it anyways there’s no damn fan on

It is there fans I can buy out there for him and put it on it? What kind would I need and

Would I have to weld it on there or something because I don’t think it’s going to just snap

On and I'm still new to the computer age even through I .can build them etc…I don’t know

Everything yet any help will be greatly appreciated

all of these would work
i would reccomend the top one just cuz its so cheap
i actually picked one of these up to cool my oc'd 5600ultra
only thing i would think of doing and that i did was pick up a different fan with a manula control so you could set it on high or low for noise issues

all of the above fit in a pci card slot
like where you would put a lan card or a modem card
one screw is all you need

That’s just it if you look at the picture of the card which is here

http://www.evga.com/products/moreinf...064-P1-NV91-LX you can see there’s

two things on the side with springs around them and you can push them in there’s not

really any place for a screw really.

EDIT heres a better picture http://images.amazon.com/images/P/B0...1.LZZZZZZZ.jpg

the fans aspire reccomended go in the pci slot below the card and blow air up into it, which would work fine but i think there is a screw slot hidden in between fins somewhere

there is not a place to put in screws on that card
i have personally had one and i have also noticed high heat priblems

that first fan card i linked you will cool it very well it's an 80mm fan
also cost a lot less than going out and buying a 50mm fan to mount on it

Hey thanks for all the help and yeah there’s not a screw to put it in but if I can id avoid the

80mm id rather just get one made for it and put it on there if possible but the when I went

Out look’n people said I would have to weld it on there or something and I wouldn’t want

To do that I just wanted one that would pop on. So thanks again I know what to look for

50mm fans right?
