    No problem. I'll replace when that happens.

    The cheapest NVIDIA GPU on the market is enough for me, so nothing to worry. :)

    And how much time do you think it has?

    wait, why dont you just hang a case fan? no more cooking oil, it could even cool it better than stock

    here's my 9800pro

    Because one of this is too big and will certainly make impossible to use my 2 occupied PCI slots.

    Thanks for the suggestion.

    the oil will end up dripping and could cause an eletrical short, killing something.

    just replace the fan with any old fan. as long as air blows over the cards its fine for a cheap fix.

    I agree with your ultimate solution of using an alternative fan.

    However, since when will oil cause an electrical short? People have immersed their entire PCs in cooking oil without electrical issues. Oil cannot dissolve the free ions that would cause electrical shorts.

    The main problem is that the cooking oil becomes rancid after a while, and that may occur in the bearings of the fan leading to a rotten PC. Certain cooking oils are also acidic and attack plastics over long time periods. However, but electrical shorts are unheard of with oils.

    Impossible for me to get a new/old fan that would fit.

    I will have to take the risk or stop using the card. And I don't want to stop using the card.

    Thank you!

    Little enough that I would start saving my pennies now... If you really like the card, some people have had good luck baking them in an oven (after removing plastic shrouds) to tighten up the solder joints after it starts showing artifacts or otherwise failing. Either way, you must have a fully functional fan or it will die quickly. Several cheap aftermarket coolers are available - http://www.newegg.com/VGA-Cooling/SubCategory/ID-576?Order=PRICE

    Hmm, maybe I will try to buy a new one. Not sure if I will find one here.

    Buying at newegg is impossible as I'm not from US, I can buy at amazon (Only if I can't really find it here, as import taxes in my country for individuals are so violent that will more than double the price of the item (e.g.: item costs $20, I will pay ~$50. And that's because amazon shipping is quite cheap, it could be worse as the calculation of taxes includes shipping price)).

    I never had any problems with artifacts with this card. It is working perfectly well.

    Please don't use hardwaresecrets. They seem to be a bunch of jerks and think you're a criminal.

    I've put a new fan. I removed it from a non-working PSU I have here.

    The GPU is much cooler now. I just hope it doesn't fall off, otherwise my motherboard can be damaged permanently as the wires have exposed parts.

    And look how much hair the cooking oil grabbed:

    And after I put the "new" fan (I know it needs some adjustments, but it is ok for now...):

    Happy New Year!

    Great budget solution! I hope your card lasts a long time. Apparently the cooking oil fix is not viable for long! But I'm a firm believer in using whatever ghetto mods are necessary to keep old hardware running way past it's life expectancy, and you've certainly achieved that...

    the nutella pot hmmmmm

    old card are nice but latest vga use less watts and have a lot of processors to decode divx or h264 ....
    plus some very cool soundcards 7.1
    look on ebay and select "manufacturer refurbished" [they have at least one year warranty

    327 cards geforce : http://www.ebay.com/sch/Graphics-Vi...=2000&_sop=15&_nkw=geforce&rt=nc&LH_PrefLoc=2

    39 for amd http://www.ebay.com/sch/Graphics-Vi...Loc=2&_dcat=27386&rt=nc&LH_ItemCondition=2000

    may be because of new name , there is one hd6450 for $40...

    My 9500GT is still here, I got some problems while trying to fit in my new system (the cooler was touching the sound card), but it is solved already:
    [image below]

    Haha, I think it is 1mm or less from touching the sound card. Very, very close.

    I tried to use the Intel HD Graphics but it failed to satisfy my 'basic' requirements (not to mention some annoying behaviors).

    The oil will gum up after a while. You need proper grease / lubricant. Ah, you changed the fan out entirely. Good move!

    I learned that... I'm not recommending cooking oil for this. It was hard to remove it from the card.

    Since post #39. Thanks! :D

    Idle temperature is 53ºC (at 26ºC ambient temperature). Load temperature is approximately 63-68ºC.

    those temps are still really hot, but at least it shouldnt die at those temps.

    What?! That is nearly the same temperature I got when I bought this card in January 2009.

    The ambient temperature here is very hot. And it doesn't help to keep it colder than that.

    Please, details about your cooling method and environment... And your GPU uses a different manufacturing process (28nm, if that matters).

    i use the stock cooler. didnt do anything.

    thats why i'm saying your card runs hot - yes you have a fan on it now (which is great) but something else is keeping it running hot. may need new thermal paste, or maybe the fans blocked by the soundcard and not getting enough air.

    Changed today.

    It always kept at those temperatures when I had all PCI slots free...

    I think its temperature is normal, not as cool as more modern GPUs but still very far from 90 or 105ºC, which I believe to be enough! :D
