    I have a Leadtek A250 Geforce 4 Ti 4600 pictured here

    My fans are getting louder and louder and I have been told to replace them because they are dying. My problem is I can't find any fan that size at most of my local computer stores.

    One of my solutions is to use the Zalman FB123 pictured here

    My question is if this fan is sufficient in cooling my card.
    Thanks in advance!

    Thanks for the reply!

    My main concern actually is that the fan is directly above (perpendicular) to the heatsink (as opposed to its original 2 fans directly embedded in it).
    Would the cooling be virtually the same because the Zalman bracket fan is made for their own VGA heatsinks designed in a way to cool down a heatsink when the fan is prependicular to it.
