Product Description & Info Oftentimes video card manufacturers utilize this type of fan for their mid to low-end cards. While it allows for a low-profile setting to avoid
interfering with surrounding cards, when the fan decides to up and fail the user is left with no option but to replace the whole heatsink/fan assembly. While this usually ends up being an upgrade in the way of cooling, users who are worried about replacing the heatsink will find this simple drop-in replacement from Evercool much more attractive.
This particular fan is a "Buried frame" design, which sits inside of a
heatsink and mounts in three positions rather than the standard four.
