edit: Nevermind, I tried using it and the fan doesn't spin at all when used like that.
I bought a geforce 4 ti 4200 recently and the small fan that is on there now is extremely loud. The cooler is an aftermarket one so that could be contributing to the very high noise levels, but I know even the stock fan is pretty loud. I was thinking of using a low noise adapter with it and plugging it into the motherboard fan header instead. I haven't tried this yet because I'm concerned about potential thermal issues from the fan no longer spinning at a high rpm. Does anyone know if this setup would be safe to use long term?
