Silverstone FDP02 Lets You Install A 120mm Fan On PCI Brackets


If you are worried about your graphics card not getting the airflow that it needs, then the Silverstone FDP02 adapter is worth looking into. The Silverstone FDP02 allows you to install a 120mm fan using the PCI brackets of your PC case. Here is what you need to know about it.

Silverstone FDP02 External Cooling Fan Adapter Bracket

Since graphics cards are getting more and more powerful, they not only push out a lot of frames and consume more power, but they also dissipate more heat. Which needs to be exhausted out of the PC case. That might be an issue if you have something like the Nvidia RTX 4090 or 4080. The Silverstone FDP02 external cooling fan adapter bracket provides a nice solution to the problem.

The Silverstone FDP02 comes with a 120mm cooling fan and a protective fan grill. The included fan has hydraulic beatings, runs at 1500 RPM, and uses a 3-pin connector for power. You can use the adapter to install a fan at the back of your ATX case to exhaust hot air out and help your graphics card and motherboard chipset remain cool. We will need to wait for reviews to see how well this actually works.

The Silverstone FDP02 takes up 3 PCI brackets, so it is meant to be used with ATX cases and not smaller ITX cases. It supports tower cases with 7 or 8 expansion slots. This might seem overkill, but I do get how PC buildings could use this. I myself would have the fans on the front and the top pull air into the case and have two fans at the back exhaust air out of the case. It will be interesting to see if this becomes a staple in the DIY PC building market. If you are interested in learning more, then you can check out the official website.
