Yesterday i heard a weird noise from my pc, i opened the case and found out that my vga`s cooler was vibrating and making this irritating noise. So i went to muy local pc store and they are having a sale on theese two : Deepcool V2000 http://www.deepcool-us.com/Product/V2000/ and Deepcool V400 http://www.deepcool-us.com/Product/V400/ .

They both seem to fit

53mm Mounting holes
ATI Radeon HD 5870/5850/4870/4860/
4850/4830/4750/4670/4650/3870/3850/
3690/3650/3450


Will they fit on my HD3650 and if they will witch one i better ( the V2000 is 10€ cheaper). And if they fit will they fit in my Aerocool Strike-x advance case ?

You can also suggest other coolers.


SRy for my english .
and this is my first time disscussing in a forum. =)

If you need any more info just ask.

Most graphic card fans are fitted with a copper bush that the fan sits into from factory, the bush is filled with thermal grease.
This has now dried out, causing friction between the pin attached to the main fan blades and the copper bush it sits in. It can be fixed if your willing to do so by taking the old cooler off and re-packing the bush with grease if you are willing to attempt it as a fix.
or buy a new cooler, most of the time you fit it yourself following the instructions, but i am sure if you do not want to do it yourself your friendly local computer shop will do it for you for a small fee.

THx i tried adding some grease there and i works for few minutes and then it starts vibrating again.
I dont know what it is. i tried connecting a difrent fan to the fan header on the vga and it dosent make that sound.



i think il buy a new one but witch one?

V400 will be fine, the V2000 is overkill.

How much are these fans in comparison to a new graphics card?

i would get the V400. more heatpipes and a larger fan which makes for quieter and more effective cooling.

how much are these coolers anyway? i recently replaced the cooler on my HD6850. i was tired of seeing near 80 degrees. so i ordered one from Arctic Cooling for $60 US dollars http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
it's a great cooler, i never see temps go above mid 55, even running Furmark or MSI Kombustor.

What exactly do you do with your computer, because if you don't play games, you could get away with a $20-$40 graphics card.

The V400 is 26€ and the V2000 is 16€

Buy the cheaper one. Both are overkill anyway :/

i am not a gamer but i do play games.

Last game i played with this card was Crysis 2 it was in really low settings but that`s enough for me

It would make a lot more sense to get something like a HD4650 which ought to be pretty cheap. If you can afford it, a stronger card will really improve your games. Can you find a HD5670 or HD6670 in your price range? Even a HD5570 or HD6570 would be huge improvements, and they don't need much power.
