How to attatch my 486 fan to a TNT2 M64 heatsink
I have an I/O Magic MagicVideo TNT2 M64 4x AGP card. It only came with a cruddy little heatsink, held on by small plastic screw like fasteners. I just bought a 486 fan to put on it. I planned on buying plastic screws to attatch it but cant find em. How do you suggest attatching the fan to the card?
Try some metal screws like those used to attach the fan to Socket 7 heatsinks. It worked on my TNT; it did take up the adjacent PCI slot though, but I could clock that thing to 115Mhz core stable.
I just got an Innovision Tornado TNT2 M64 it also had a pitiful little heatsink. I went to www.3dfxcool.com and got an RHTO fan - it is $11.00, but it is quite small - ball bearing too. It is a fan/heatsink combo that sticks onto the graphics chip. First see if the existing heatsink can be removed easily. Don't pull to hard of course - there's a chance the chip could pop off the board. The heatsink on my TNT2 board was barely attached - came off with only a little twist. I can clock the card to at least 150MHz core with no lockups - I think that's the speed that Diamond's 770 Ultra runs at by default. I use TNTClk. If sysopt.com doesn't have it, try www.ocshoot.com - their download section has it. When you run it, your computer will appear to lock up for about 10 seconds; I guess that's normal though.
