I accidently snapped one of the fan blades off my Radeon 6770, and it is making a horrible vibrating noise, temp hasn't been affected. Which fan should I buy if any? My exact card = http://images.rakuten.com/PI/0/1000/221325466.jpg

Would I need a fan, or a whole new heatsink for the gpu? And how long would the gpu last before the bearing gives way?

So you went for a new fan huh? :)

Lol, not anymore, I've got a spare 80mm cpu fan, so when my gpu fan finally does pack in (falls off its bearing etc) Ill just use that bad boy ;)

As for when the fan dies.. There should be 3 or more tiny tiny screws holding the fan to the heatsink. And if there isn't you might have to either snap it off the heatsink or get a new one.. I have a 6770 too but it is a HIS one and it looks pretty much the same w/o its fan shroud.
And Ebay has tons of replacement GPU fans of many sizes.

I'm going to revive this thread since the fan blade carriage of my 6770 has fallen off the the heat sink. I'm waiting for the results of the warranty check (purchased less than two years ago) but I'm still exploring all the options.

I'm in basically the same boat. What did you find?

Well, what happened in my case is the donut shaped circuit board and electro-magnet assembly just dropped off the bracket that bolted the whole thing to the heat sink. I managed to tack the thing to the bracket with a dab of contact cement but that repair lasted just a couple of days. The bearings in the fan blade carriage have now seized up, also.

I visited Radeon's warranty page (www.xfxforce.com, registering is required) and filed a service report. After a couple of days they issued a Merchandise Return order for me. I spent yesterday cleaning the board as they suggested and I'm about to ship it off to their facility. That's my status up to now. I'll post again when I know something further.

Thank you. I'm going to try the RMA path as well, see what they say. In my case, though, it's HIS, which doesn't seem to be as user friendly.

Same happen with me... I also accidently snapped one of the fan blades off my Radeon 6770. My card still in warranty. What reason should i give to get the fan replaced Or Does anyone know if my warranty would be void if I fixed it myself?
