New Fan To My Graphic Card

Hi all, been on this forum for quite a while now and it have come to that I need some help. I want to put a new fan on my graphic card but I am not sure what fans that fit with my card and dont feel like buying a fan to find out that it dont fit or cant connect the fans power cable, I am using this card: ASUS GEFORCE GTX 260 GLACIATOR

I bought this fan type but it did not fit with the power connector on the card

Any help is appreciated

Also want to mention that the card is running at 80-87 celsius when I play starcraft II, and I dont know much about graphic cards but aint that really high?

Asus and Gigabyte have a habit of making non reference cards i.e it is hard to find a after market cooling solution for them, as most after market cooling solutions are for reference cards. In short, what your asking may not be possible.

Price for Cards like the GTX 460's e.g are dropping rapidly due to new models having been released so maybe you could consider an upgrade.

Try this site. They may have something compatible with your card. Use the Contact e-mail and maybe they can advise you of the proper fit.

Alright thanks for answering, and a new card is not possible for me atm, no money ^^. I did send them a mail and if they cant help I guess I can try and add new paste on the card, planing on buying new case fans that hopefully helps bringing in more airflow

You can also try one of these pointed directly at the GPU heat sink on at least medium speed setting or high.

Andreas W,
It mounts to the mobo stand off screw or any other screw in the case. The mobo mount keeps it close to the components needing to be cooled and a fan power header on the board or you can plug it into a fan power plug off the PSU. This little thing does a fine job but the neck is a little floppy so you may want to secure it with a wire tie or something to keep it from moving from the direction you want the air flow to go.

Alright seem to simple enough, and even more when I have it infront of me, I am also planing on getting new case fans because the 140mm ones I got with my corsair are weird or its my mother board, but if I use program to monitor my fans or look in the bios the case fans go from 1200 to 900, to 600, to 320 and then back to 1200 etc and it it just shows like this forever but when I look at the fans in the case they run at full speed, but it dont feel like they are bringing in any air, but ye small stuff that will be taken care of
