Hi.

After taking apart an old imac, i now have a Large Beastly Fan (tm) which I have checked will run off a molex plug. I'm going to whack this in my PC somewhere and i was just wondering, could i stick it on top of my graphics card (7900GT), on top of the heatsink / fan? Would I need special thermal paste or could i just superglue it on? 8)

cheers.

This sounds like a recipe for disaster.

Don't do it, your better off with the stock or aftermarket fan that are spefically made for the 7900GT. If you want better cooling for the card then check out the vga coolers from Zalman or Artic Cooling.
