So I'm in full Voodoo 3 preservation mode now because I've run across some bad cards and want to protect the ones that are still functional.
A little while ago, I posted a picture of a quick-and-dirty mod where I zip tied a fan to the V3 heatsink. It still works pretty well. I was running loops of the Unreal flyby as a stress test and noticed that the card's reverse where the GPU sits on the other side gets really hot too. Is it overkill to cool this side of the board too, maybe with a case slot fan that looks something like this?
My question is, for those who own a fan like this, which direction does the air flow?
Here's what the setup looks like inside of the case. I'd want the air flowing down onto the back of the card, obviously, so I wouldn't buy one if it shot air upward. Thanks!
