Radeon 4870 HD Fan not working Tags: Graphics Cards Fan HD Radeon Graphics Last response: January 17, 2010 3:13 PM in Graphics & Displays Share Anonymous Graphics card Master January 17, 2010 11:05:10 AM Installed said graphics card, but the fans are not working. I've tried a variety of changing wires. I admit I've never installed a graphics card with additional wires for power, but it all seemed to go together well. It works fine, just no movement from the fans. Tried manual control and nothing. Doesn't appear to be any damage so I think it may be my lack of knowledge... Any tips?

I did wonder if it was a power thing? is there anyway to tell if the internal wired plug in fine but they aren't compatable, or would it still load and just crash if it was in need of more power? | Report abuse wa1 Graphics card Master January 17, 2010 1:12:53 PM did u connect the power connector cables? Is it brand new? If still not working then just return it for replacement... | Report abuse Anonymous Graphics card Master January 17, 2010 1:29:37 PM Thanks for the reply! Yeah I tried it on different ones, the power connections work fine for the CD Drive, but pluged the same ones into the fans and nothing. Brand new, fully sealed. And yup, guess it might be a return job, just want to make sure it's not me being an idiot! | Report abuse Related ressources Sapphire HD 4870 1GB Manual fan control not working in CCC - Forum ASUS Radeon 4870 HD , Fan has stopped working . - Forum Buying Radeon HD 4870 X2 in 2012 - Forum Issue with radeon hd 4870 x2 videocard overheating. - Forum Installed Radeon HD 4870 from 4850...computer not booting - Forum Ask the community Publish wa1 Graphics card Master January 17, 2010 1:41:11 PM i mean, the 6pin connector cables from PSu to your card... did u attached them? | Report abuse Anonymous Graphics card Master January 17, 2010 2:07:15 PM Well the 6 Pin is connected to the card, which splits to two 3 pin, which I got plugged into the spare internals.
