    Default Re: Replace graphics card fan?

    Find a big old heatsink and stick it on. I did recently with a 8500gt and had games running on it with temps looking fine.

    I think I used a p2 heatsink lol

    Cheers all.

    Since having the thing out and fiddling around with it yesterday I haven't heard any horrid noises from it today. That makes me worried though, as it might not be spinning now so I'll have to get the cover off again to have a look.

    If it's not spinning you'll find out when the screen goes blank and there's a funny smell...
    Non-system disk or disk error. Replace and strike any key when ready.

    No blank screen or smoke appearing... yet. So far so good.

    Just in case I have to eat my words, probably in five minutes time, I'm thinking I ought to decide on a replacement card to be on the safe side. New thread coming up!
