Hello all:

I'm planning on O/C my ATI 9500 pro and bought a PCI slot "AGP" cooler.
I've
installed it and noticed an immediate drop in case temps : ) I understand
that this is not the best cooling solution out there but for $15.00 CDN, it
is by far the cheapest. I won't be O/Cing to the extreme anyways. I just
want to smooth out BF 1942, and BFV with all the eyecandy.

My question is:

I've installed it in the PCI slot directly below the Vid card and I figure
that since the two fans are more or less "fighting" for the same air (the
PCI fan exhausts), both
fans must work harder than they normally would. I wanted to make sure that
it doesn't interfere or shorten the life span of the actual Vid card fan.

Should I drop the addon fan to the next PCI slot?

I had mine at the bottom below the AGP card.
