I have a low profile gt220 1gb oem in a full sized case DELL INSPIRON, i would like to install a vga cooller but most of the ones i found exclude low profile cards. Any help anyone?

Also miht replace the case+ psu, so any one know a nvedia graphic card which gives a huge boost over the gt220 but has passive cooling? for aroung 100£

Thanks

[FONT=Arial]The fan on my nVidia 8800GT is dying. :cry: I am looking to replace with a non-fan card. :thinking:[/FONT]


[FONT=Arial]This card is a popular choice on this site : Sapphire HD4670 512MB PCI E Ultimate Graphics Card :thinking:[/FONT]

Having no luck for the moment looking at flexible riser card+ full size vga cooler.
Or replacing the actual fan which seems harder than it should.

Want to stay with nvedia for 3d discovery.

Thanks for the help.

Too big? Dual slot cooler, but it is a beast hehe

The fastest Nvidia passive about is the 240GT at about £90 but no low-profile. HERE.

k thanks will look at some benchmarks.
By the way think my quesion was incomprehensible: i have a full size desktop with a low profile graphic card gt220 would like to install a new vga cooller so that it makes less noise and cools better.

would it be possible to hack a full size vga cooller to install on my low profile card?

I'm pretty sure it would work mecanicly fit on my card.
And it will deffnenently by better at extracting heat than the curent oem fan

THE PROBLEME IS that the current fan is 4 pin (black yellow blue blue) and the replacment is 2 pin (black red)

Another option would be to place a large case fan so it blows across the card which would increase the cooling and would therefore slow the card fan making it less noisy.

So they put a low profile GPU inside a full sized ATX case? Nice lol

Just buy a new card, it sounds like it needs one to be honest. No point wasting your money on after-market coolers that might not fit, unless you have experience of doing it there is good chance you will destroy the card considering it won't be designed for what your using it on. Been there, done that lol

Yes well not buy a dell again, had to get them out a month after buying it cause it was making horrendous noise: there was not enough thermal paste on the processor and there was 1 screw holding each hdd in place and yes a low profile vga card in a full sized case.

Thanks Phear that’s exactly what i was going to do pretty sure it could work but there's probably some detail I haven’t thought of that will burn out the card.

Just going to go for some good thermal paste and a pci cooler should reduce the noise and ameliorate cooling. Might upgrade the graphic card when i upgrade the psu.
