Hi Guys,

Been noticing a strange noise coming my inside my computer over the last few months, just did a clean out today and checked the graphics card (MSI GTX560ti) and I noticed the sound is from one of the fans. I manually blew into each one and one of them was fine the other made a rattling sound like a bad bearing or something. Did a full clean and problem still persists.

Fixable? Or not worth it?

Upgrading card this year and this issue has put me of MSI and a little off Nvidia cards in general.


Any thoughts?

Well it depends when your planned upgrade is taking place!! If it's under warranty, return it. If it's not under warranty and you are comfortable removing the heat sink/casing to change the fan, go on ebay, buy one and get working :)

just don't forget to reapply a fresh coat of thermal paste to the heat sink while putting it back together.
