    I have one of these cards sitting at work:

    EVGA 256-P2-N733-LR GeForce 8400 GS 256MB 64-bit G...

    The problem is, the fan died and I would like to replace it. The stock heatsink has pushpins that are diagonal to each other, and they are 80mm apart (on center). Does anyone have anything that can replace this? Heat in sig... :respect:

    Oh my, I forgot! I couldn't find the heatsink you were looking for sorry. :eek: I know exactly what your talking about too, the one I had cooled the chipset on an old board floating around here. Good luck on your quest for the missing link to find the sink! :respect:

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    I have a evga 7300 gt which has a hsf very similar to that if you want it. Cost to you shipping and I'll send the whole card as it is fried.


    It's this one here.

    You honestly could get away with buying a 60mm/70mm case fan and mounting it on the original heatsink then useing the connector from the old to wire it into the GPU. Would save money but take some time installing.

    I did think of that, but I'm trying to resurrect this card for work, so I'd prefer to have something less rigged and more stock.

    I'll check this evening but I do believe it will work considering the card you posted and mine are basically the same pcb.

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    I am measuring about 3.25 inches between the pins. I would swear this will work as it to me looks like the exact same pcb front and back. Even has the four smaller holes around the gpu.

    Heres your on the back

    I'll have to doubke-check it tomorrow. BTW, 70mm is 2.75 inches, so unless I have the extra mounting holes around the GPU I don't think it will work.

    Um .. why not just replace the whole card? I have a 384mb 9600 GSO I'd let go for really cheap.

    I used to have that same style card back when it was $5 after rebate free shipping. I like that it is a full size PCB. Makes it look more aesthetically pleasing. :) Bump4u

    Thanks for putting in a good word for me, stinger !

    tski, have you checked out Ebay ? They have loads of replacement fans of different diameters as well as heatsinks for cheap, the downside is you need to sort trough a lot of results to find something that will match your card, and it might take a while to arrive from China.

    It would probably just be cheaper to get a new card.

    Yours must not be exactly like the one link you posted from the egg. The one you linked would have the holes for the hsf mine is using and should be actually using them. :toast:
