Hiya, I don't know the measurments but I know it's quiet small! I'm looking for a 2 pin fan that will screw on to the top of my graphics card heat sink. I'm overclocking my Geforce 2 MX 400 w/64MB SDRAM (adding heat sinks on to them as well but got them) w/tv out. Thanks. I am rather skint so if you got one lying around your basement that would be great, send it to me or if you know any good UK shops then please recomend them. I based in UK.

Nope none of them sites have a small 40 mil or so 2 pin fan.
Any small fan should work ok. Just cut the 2 pin connector (with a little wire to work with) off your old fan, cut the connector off the new fan, and attach the old connector to the new fan. You might have to get creative in mounting the fan though. I replaced one recently and epoxied the non-moving fan hub to the heatsink. Works like a charm. :)

:) but I don't have a small fan :eek: and were can i get one. I could solder the points I don't have a spare two pin connecter and I would also screw the fan onto the heat sink.

does your video card happen to have a fan header on it, even though it came with a passive heatsink?

if not, you'll just plug the fan into the mobo via the normal 3-pin connector on most fans.

Yes the graphics card has a 2 pin fan connecter on it. Thats why I want to buy a two pin small fan.

Or grab a little pigtail connector that connects to one of the main harddrive/cdrom pigtails they sell those :)

Sometimes it is possible to fit a little fan from a 486 onto the card it has been done many times ... Hell I fitted a coolmaster fan from an Athlon1800 onto a card one time LOLOL now I use a thermaltake G4mode cooler with the cool blue light << adds to cooling 2-3 degrees for sure huh :p

they're pretty easy to find. that's just a quick one i found, but it's in the US. find some case accessory store sites in and around england... they'll sell all different sizes of fans.

if the viddy card has the 2 mounting holes in it, the £7.99 tk 40mm graphics card fan. it has the 2 pins u want, it is a 40mm fan, no pi$$ing about mounting it to the heatsink as the thermaltake has its own heatsink built in and is designed for video cards, its not too big as you said, and perfect for the job you need it to do.

The EKL also has a built-in heatsink. Or was that what you meant? :)
