Zalman ZM-SC100 System Cooling Fan
System cooling fan - minimises video card and general PC running temperatures, PCI-slot mounted and powered with triple fan speed setting
This simple but very useful little fan can be easily installed in a free PCI slot and will provide additional cooling to all parts of your PC, especially around the video card area. The ZM-SC100 obtains its power through the PCI slot so there is no need for additional wiring, and has a choice of three speed settings (low, medium or high) so you can choose the best performance/noise balance according to your preference. The switch is located on top of the product for ease of access, and has an adjacent small red LED to indicate power. The fan itself also has an LED which glows blue during operation. Like any PCI card, please ensure your PC is powered down before installing or removing the ZM-SC100.

Good idea. Not so well executed.
Only just barely fit in the PCI slot which made installation unnecessarily hard. It's in there now however, so no biggie. The overall quality of the part is fine and it does it's job pretty well. The real problem is it's clearly audible even on the low setting. All in all I can't recommend it.
Device rather fat so didn't fit my computer
I just purchased this product and it may be very good (I like the idea), but please make sure that you have plenty of space on your MoBo for it because it is rather fat! It extends beyond the normal width of a PCI device in BOTH directions. This meant that I needed to have free PCI slots on either side of the card and I don't. I have therefore had to send it back.
