ATi 5850 fan failing

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
It appears the fan in my 5850 is on the way out, bearings appear to have worn out... (constant wir noise and when you turn up the fan it just goes crazy)

I'm going to clean it and see if it helps but does anyone have a spare fan lying around for the reference 58** series?

I live in Australia and im willing to pay for it.

The reference cooler is a must in my system, im trying to keep a clean matching look.

i would say just RMA it, but that may be expensive for you. I had the same thing happen to me with sapphire, so I rma'ed it for $10 and they sent me one with a better designed fan, but no voltage controls :/

If you post in the WTB section, someone may have one. or look for people who have watercooled 5850's and ask them if u can buy their reference coolers. that would probbaly be the fastest way.

try pulling it apart and swapping the bearings with a set of bearings from an 80mm fan and heat up some vaseline and put it in as bearing grease it may help. it fixed my old 120mm fans. its worth a shot

I have disassembled it previously to clean it out so RMA is out of the question :/

I will have to go post in the WTB section then :/

The way the fan is designed i cant actually get it apart from what i can see.

Just took it apart to have a look and the fan is clean (cleaned it when i changed to my new case which is filtered) and i cant see a way to pull it apart, took the stickers off the front and back and they are solid....

there should be a plastic gusset or cover on the back side of the fan were you can see the rod that it spins on. when you find that there is a small snap ring inside that u need to gently pull apart to get the fan to slide off.

As long as you have reassembled it properly and not damged it in anyway they should take it back no problems. Was there any sort of sticker saying void if removed?

There is a small piece of copper there instead...

I have modified the shell and im pretty sure the sticker was removed long aggo... The card is also 14 months old. I think for Australia the XFX warranty is only a year :/

And i dont have enough rep to post in the buy/sell section.

I think i may just get some third party coolers next pay.

Two of these maybe.
