    Hey guys,

    I am looking for a replacement fan for my ATI 9600XT All in Wonder as it is dying (loud noise for the first 5min of poweron). I am currently looking at:

    http://www.bigfootcomputers.com/Mer...een=PROD&Product_Code=7801&Category_Code=71.1

    Has anyone used this or have a better solution? Also, as seen in this pic:

    there is a passive memory cooler. I would prefer not to install it, Im wondering if it's required or not. I emailed the manufacturer to no avail (no response).

    Thanks in Advance,
    Mike

    Whoa that is expensive from that place... I am currently using one for my ATI Radeon 9600XT They seem to work fine. Very quiet. Running at 93.2 F or 34 C.

    Try Xoxide They are much much cheaper.

    Do you need to use the (in my opinion) ugly bracket, which I believe is a passive memory cooler.

    Also, I need a canadian site. I don't buy from the states.

    EDIT: I've googled the cooler with "Pages from Canada" selected, seems that price is basically the norm here :(
