I have a Voodoo 3 3000 that overheats after a little while and puts multicolored artifacts all over the screen. It can work for a while, though. I've never tried to attach a fan to a V3 because I didn't want to rip the heatsink off the silicon. It turns out that those brass pins securing the heatsink to the PCB come out pretty easily.
I decided to attach an old CPU fan with zip ties that would fit through the 2.5mm holes where the pins were. I had to use five zip ties (they were short, so I had to make two long ones out of the five). I used a hole closer to the slot cover as another anchor point. It's kind of ugly, but the fan fits snugly on the heatsink without any ratting. I was able to run a 3dmark99 benchmark and do a few other tasks before the card started artifacting again. But I may do this for my fully-functioning V3s in the future.
