Hello, I have a GeForce FX 5200 which can is perfect for some dos/win95 gaming, but since the fan was doing a lot of noise I zip tied on it a cooler from an 486sx CPU. Looks like to be cooling it well, but has a power draw of ~11w (12v 0,9a), power hungry compared to the original (12v 0,11a).
To be on the safe side I've connected directly to the PSU, since I don't know the video card TDP (cannot find it anywhere), the agp slot maximum power draw and if the fan connector for the video card can deal with and an higher power one. Can somebody more expert tell me if will be fine? Thanks
