Not often I get a retro card in full original box these days, so it would seem a sacriledge to chop it up.
Oh well, I could always macgyver on some better fans after removing the 'shroud' though.
The fans are why it got put on the shelf 🤣, I had a look at trying to replace them myself and quickly decided that trying to MacGyver new ones on might do more hard than good, the GPU still works so I decided to retire it to a display piece rather than butcher it trying to replace the fans, its possible the originals can be rebuilt but I haven't looked into that yet.
One day Ill take another crack at it when I can find some suitable replacements that wont require me to MacGyver it or I can get a second card to butcher for parts.
If you can find some nice replacement fans for it that fit the card drop me a message, I would be interested in getting some myself 😁
Its such a nice looking card and the pink looks great on my shelf !
Im crazy not stupid, well not stupid enough to make claims that are total nonsense.
