How to replace an ATI Radeon HD 5870 graphics card fan?

Hi. The fan on my card is dying, or near the end, and I know it needs to be replaced. I don't have enough money for a replacement card or to get a new one. I just have enough for the replacement fan.

Are there any tutorials or videos on how to go about this? What supplies/tools will I need? I'm very nervous about this, I've never taken a card apart before, so I would like to know as much as possible before I start taking things apart.

Thank you for your time. I really hope someone can help with this, as it's caused me a surprising amount of stress.

  1. A lot of the time those fans aren't really replaceable. You might want to look on eBay for someone selling a dead card and swap the entire assembly over.
