ATI Radeon 9600 series question

Hi all,

I'm wondering if anyone knows if the 9600XT or the 9600 graphic card have an
extra fan besides the standard one that is always there?

I'm aware that the 9800 Pro has an extra fan but I'm curious about the 9600
series.

Thanks so much for any insight!

--Annie

I'm having trouble getting the images to come up (even not using AOL's
browser). Saw one board picture of the 9600XT and I didn't see any fan. That
can't be right! LOL! Must have been the back of the board.

Nope, the shot was right. It does not have a fan. I have one in my system.
Works great - no fan - less noise.

Oh, and for those that are sure to doubt, here is a link to ati's own
website and gallery of shots of their video cards:

FWIW, I have a 9200 and it has no fan, only a large heat sink. (That was one
of the criteria for getting it, since an NVidia card's fan lasted about six
weeks before going out and taking the card with it.)

Fred and Gary,

What a surprise! The 9800XT has TWO fans.

Thanks for your input and the link!
