Re: Voodoo 5500 cooling

It certainly would have been nice if 3dfx had used slightly beefier heatsinks. There's not much surface area there. But my 80x15mm fan on 5v has worked fine. I set this up years ago. http://img42.imageshack.us/img42/3906/voodoo580mm.th.jpg I cool mine the same way. Just that I have a much larger …

The 4.04 SB16 was thrown out for noise and noise only! Otherwise it would have been my choice: All …
