    hi guys i want to take the fan off my VGA card its a all-in-wondoer 8500DV and has no mounting holes by the GPU, so what ever i do i'll end up using two-part thermally-conductive epoxy adhesive.

    so do i get the Zalman Silent Video Card Heatsink glue-mount ZM17-CU http://www.quietpc.com/uk/vgamb.php#zm17cu
    or do i go for something a bit bigger that should use mounting holes but just use adhesive and hope it does't pull it off i was thinging something like....
    http://www.tekheads.co.uk/s/product?product=604232

    now the weight is ... 120g for the zalman and its 220g for the Aerocool VM-101

    what do you guys think thanks :thumb:

    edit: oh yeah by the way this computer is in a 19" rack so the mobo is flat on the floor of the case(not in a tower) and case has good air flow i think

    Cut an intel retail P4 heatsink down to size, and strap it on with cable ties :)
