Take the card out and try to spin the fan freely..if it's stuck and you run a 5970..your going to burn that card up within minutes. If the fan is dead, or the bearing is bad, send your card back

no no no... don't remove anything best thing to do is to call your supplier as soon as possible and tell them whats happened an get a replacement, or call the manufacturing company if you open it you can VOID your warranty an you will of wasted your money!

i know your must be concerned but dont jump to anything, expecially if its 2am you need time to think and i think you should deal with it in the morning. You will save yourself ALOT of hassell in the long run my friend

RMA to Sapphire, you spent a good amount of money on the card and shouldn't be messing with a bad card. Send it back before you void the warranty.
