Added a fan to my Voodoo 3 2000 AGP. (Yeah I know the screws are not all the same but they're from my screw pail and they do the job). I don't plan on overclocking but since I will be playing lots of glide games I don't want it to be getting too hot either. I want to keep temperature variance to a minimum.

Any recommendations on specific type and size Of screws I should use? I mean I could go through my "pail" 🤣 but I could go to the store and buy some gucci screws too! 😉

It is possible to commit no errors and still lose. That is not a weakness, that is life.

Back in the day we used little vga? heatsink / fan combos that just clipped into the original heatsink holes on the voodoo 3 2000 in order to run it at 3000 and 3500 clock speeds. Mine is still setup like that. But your current setup is very similar looking other than the screws.

I would avoid modding the video card altogeher, and get one of these PCI slot dual fan brackets and mount it below the video card. Works like a charm! Ultra cool and quiet 😀
