In an effort to to try and make my PC run as quietly as possible I have upgraded the CPU cooler and power supply to models with silent fans. Both these components are now operating with minimal noise.
However my video card (nvidia 8500gt) which also has a fan is rather loud.
I know I can replace the fan with a heatsink however I was wondering if it's OK to disconnect this fan and allow the graphics card to operate without this? I don't play any games .... watching HD movies is probably the most graphics intensive task I perform.
