Hi

I have a dual slot sapphire HD 4850, the fan is 2 pin so sits at 100% 24/7 which is annoying.  If I change the settings in CCC it doesn't change the fan speed, I also tried editing the bios and I am unable to change the fan speed in that either.  I guess this is because the gfx card doesn't support multi fan speeds, hence why it is only a 2 pin fan connector.  I want to mod it to make it quieter.





I was thinking of adding something like this...







Does anyone know where you can buy these cheap.
The only one of found is this one trade me,
but it seems a bit expensive @ $16 + $5 Postage = $21

Thanks,
Mike
