So the fan on my GF2 doesn't work.
This is the card and the fan in question.
I took the heatsink off a Geforce4 MX 440 i had, and it fits perfectly on the GF2.
This is the heatsink
I ran some games and benchmarks and the heatsink did get pretty hot to the touch, but otherwise no artifacts or crashes running 3D applications.
Would there be a problem of continuting to run the card like that?
The original heatsink looks pretty unimpressive and its fan is tiny, so not sure if they really made that much of a difference and im thinking if the GF4 MX was made to run passive cooling only then the GF2 should be alright as well?
