Gigabyte GTX 560 Ti SOC fans clicking!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Ok, my Gigabyte GTX 560 Ti SOC fans are making a clicking noise whenever they spool up off idle speeds.... such as load during games. Also when the pc is first turned on and before booting and drivers run, the initial few seconds of full speed fan they make this noise. I have not checked to isolate that it is the GPU fans but due to the startup sound I am nearly posititve this is it.

It is not a terrible loud sound but is very noticeable and annoying. It is there at low speeds also, even now I can hear it but faintly, it increases as speed does. I have checked to see if a wire is touching the blades but this is not the case.

Is there a way that I can pull of the blades and lube the motor/bearing?

This is the 950 core revision and performs wonderfully performance wise.

Those fans are tilted at an angle and I think I remember that they slightly protude from the shroud.

Just make sure they are not hiting some rogue wire or the shroud itself. Otherwise it may be the fan bearings.

You can unscrew the shroud and the fans come away with it.

When did you purchase the unit... in case of a RMA?

The shroud is flimsy as usual. It might be vibrating from the airflow.

Or like the other guy said, maybe the fan cable is hitting the back of the fan causing a clicking sound thats also a possibility.

Are you sure none of the fan blades are broken? Because in that case, there would definitely be some clicking.

I purchased it a few months ago, so I can take the shroud off and expose the bearings to lube it? I would really rather not TMA if I can fix this thing, I have never had to do it before and of all things want my badass GPU without downtime. lol

I think there is 4 or 6 screws that hold the shroud in place. Once off, the fans are exposed from the undercarriage of the shroud. Not too much lube though, dont what that muck all over your HS assembly
