Hello guys,
I have a question,it is necessary to put an additional fan on this graphic?
I can use it as it was sold.

Thanks

Technically it probably wouldn't be necessary in a case with good airflow, however these cards are so expensive nowadays that adding a fan is just sheer common sense 😀
I recommend adding a two-fan case bracket under the video card instead of modding it.

The PCI Voodoo 3 on the other hand ABSOLUTELY needs fans, for both the GPU but especially for the voltage regulator.
