it's been about a 2 weeks since my computer keeps shutting off.i opened the case and realized that the fan on the video card is not working.i took the card out and checked it,it seems that it's been out for a while and the chassis where the fan sits has melted.
HIS are not replying.i put a cheap internal fan next to it to keep it cool,but it's not doing a good job. where on earth can i get that exact fan.....
on the fan itself i read "KEEP DC brushless fan,model A8015H12S DC 12V 0.26A .
the card is HIS H487FN512P Radeon HD 4870 512MB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP.
can you help please?
this is how it looks like: http://www.amdzone.com/phpbb3/download/file.php?id=350&...
the blue fan.
The best way to go would be to get a third party cooler, as it will be more reliable and keep it cooler. Plus, like you said, it is a PITA to find replacement fans for Radeons.
nah..the card isn't fried yet ..i installed a cheap fan in a slot right next to it and i'm still using the computer as normal..only it shuts off all of a sudden sometimes..do you recommend a fan that could comfortably keep the video card cool? what shape fan? the cheap one i got there is this : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
but it's barely moving...i wanna solve this issue once and for all..
thanks for your help.
