video card heatsink fan.

  1. Hello everyone - I have a ATI 9200se video card with just a heatsink no fan. I would like to add a fan to the chip in place of the heatsink. I look at the card and the only thing that looks like a place to plug it it at has a jumper. The two builds I have put together never had jumpers on any of the fan headers. Plus the ATI board does not label it FAN. Is there anyone out there that knows if this is a header for an added fan or it is something else. Thanks in advance for any responses.

    If it is jumpered then it is not a fan header. You can use any fan headers from the motherboard if you like or the power connectors from the PSU.

    Thanks Nodsu, thats what I was thinking. I will try to use the PSU to power the fan.
