    Default Replacement fan for an old 7900GT?

    I'm trying to find a cheap replacement fan for an old Nvidia 7900GT I have which is incredibly noisy - just a little project to keep me busy during these rainy days. Can anyone point me in the right direction? Apparently Accelero's don't fit? Would be very grateful for any help

    True. I was just idly wondering if there was a dirt cheap after market fan for the 7900GT I didn't know about. I'll look at 9800GT's too

    If you want quiet there's always the Zalman VNF100 Fanless Heatpipe VGA Cooler, it is designed to fit a 7900 amongst other cards. Should be able to pick one up for around 20-25.

    Thanks guys. I've found an exact same fan on the Bay - new, and exactly the same dimensions as the fan on the 7900GT I have. It's coming from Hong Kong but I only paid 1.85 inc P&P for it. I'll see if that helps. It's only like an last ditch emergency 3rd back up card.
