Gigabyte GeForce 9500GT rear fan sticker question

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, my 9500GT fan was making a lot of noise since a long time ago but until today I decided that I needed to fix it.

I took the video card's fan apart and on the rear side of it (the side which is not visible unless you take apart the fan from the card), it had a sticker, I removed that sticker but I accidentally ripped it in half and couldn't put it back on, anyways... I applied some oil to the mechanical part which was hidden by the sticker I removed, then I put the fan once again to the video card, turned on my computer and voila! The card was silent once again.

My question actually is... what is the purpose of the sticker I removed? Does it matter if I don't put it back again?

Thanks!

Likely to see if you messed with it so a company would know if you tried to RMA it.

Yeah, warranty most likely void. <_<

all its for is to tell you the specs and manufacturer of the fan. or depending on the fan to keep the oil/grease in the fan. for the second part a piece of tape will work just fine.

Ok then, then I guess it really doesn't do anything but just in case I'm gonna tape it like philhalo66 said.

Thanks for the help, +rep.
