I just ordered one of these to replace the stock cooling on my 6800GT. What I want to do is attach the fan directly to a Motherboard fan header thats right above the AGP slot.

Other than the disadvantage of having to have the fan run at full speed 2600 RPM is there any reason why I wouldnt want to do this?

Thanks

Should not be a problem as the fan headers are much more capable than the early A socket boards.

Seems fine to power it via the motherboard:
-oh, and to answer someone's question above. the Zalman is being powered by one of my motherboard's fan headers.

Thanks for the replies.

Should make for a much cleaner look without that adapter and the extender I would have to use to make it reach a spare molex.
