Looking for a fanless video card to use for a basic HTPC  - HDMI required. 

Anyone got anything free/cheap/beer ? :)

Would use the onboard video but Win 7 seems to hate it (ATI based - other media PC has same issue).

TIA :)

Hey, have you listed a price, location and how much shipping would be to other parts of New Zealand? Also if you are asking for a PM make sure your Privacy settings allow your account to receive PM otherwise people can't contact you. Also note if you are selling something we ask you to offer to other members first. Links to private sales (including Trade Me posts) aren't accepted anymore and will be removed.

What is the onboard?

I have an AMD A8 APU - and it seems to work fine in W7 (and even when I converted to W10).  I've done this on a number of machines.

Both the motherboard based drivers and downloaded from AMD directly.


Not answering your query I know.

full height or low profile?

I've got a fanless EN210 512Mb card here with a very chunky heatsink (https://www.asus.com/media/global/products/BFv6m0Y3Ht7BMzUn/531FnGQijkeoA7yT_500.jpg) with only the low profile bracket (giving HDMI and DVI outputs).  It was incompatible with the older machine we purchased it for (heatsink was too big).

I do have a full height bracket that will bolt on and expose the DVI, but the HDMI will be only half exposed by a round hole for an SVGA connector so you would have to get a little creative with that.

$20 shipped (but it won't be today)

These are older systems, quite a few years old :)
Im yet to try Win10 with it tho, might fix the issue but for this particular PC prefer a dedicated card.
