Default Re: Did anyone ever find a replacement for the 5800U's YSTech Blower?

I'm wondering now how I could get some sort of catalog of different fan motors, something like MCM Electronics or a hobbyist's catalog... something with part number references...

I'll betcha the casing to that fan is a standard form factor, and there just may be a way to bolt a larger setup on there... if it's taller then I could use spacers between the plastic panels so it still could possibly fit...

... The big thing with this card is the ram heat, and if I knew somehow that REAL STURDY AND LARGE Copper heatsinks on the ram and a Copper 1U HSF on the gpu would work, then I'd do it... Problem is, there's no heatpipe in my equation.. did the nv card REALLY need and/or benifit from it, or was it all show?
