any hope for a dying video card fan? Tags: Radeon Graphics Cards Fan Sapphire Graphics Last response: June 1, 2006 6:36 AM in Graphics & Displays Share zeroyb May 31, 2006 8:49:15 PM I have Sapphire 9600XT. Does anyone know if fans on video cards are replaceable or serviceable? I will buy a new video card if I have to, but I really would prefer not to. Thanks.

For service, cleaning it from dust regularly is the best way to keep it running better and longer. majorpain1588 June 1, 2006 1:44:18 AM Video Card heatsink and fan coolers are definately replaceable. Look at a pc hardware store for GPU coolers and find one that is compatible with your card. Could be difficult since your card is older. I found this at frozencpu that says it is compatible with a 9600. Arctic Cooling ATI Silencer 1 (9500, 9600, 9700, 9800, X600, X700, X800, FireGL) - Rev 2.0 hope this helps. 8) Related resources Is my graphics card dying ? - Forum Varying fan speeds on new build - dying PSU ?? - Forum ATI 5870 Give Away - Winner just confirmed:) Hope you had fun! - Forum Asus A8N-SLI chipset fan dying - Forum My graphics card is Dying ?? - Forum Can't find your answer ?

Get the answer queuetrip June 1, 2006 2:28:14 AM get the zalman silent cooler, (just watch the squeezing of the heatsink plates to avoid wrecking the vidio card) , or the vf700 (vf 900 won't work) Really, you should ditch it, and get a directx 9 sm 3.0 card i.e the x1600 series or higher... or if you are using agp... The nvidia 7800gs agp card would be faster and allow to play the new games... or just get a new computer with PCI-express slots... zeroyb June 1, 2006 6:36:03 AM awesome. thanks for the info guys.
