It's unfortunate ... but the FAN assembly seams to be the weak link with our TOXIC card, especially for some reason people who purchased their card LATE ... seems if you bought an early card they lasted longer for some reason ? but I've read several complaints about people who purchased them near the end of their production have complaints of Fan's Failing.

 

That said, they would be hard to come by unless someone WATER COOLED their TOXIC and was willing to sell their old Fan Assembly to you, so you might have to consider one of two things.

 

Either an RMA of your card back to your VENDOR, not directly through to Sapphire, though I'd start by emailing Sapphire at the email addy I gave ET900 and hope you get a response.

 

/or

 

consider replacing your FAN / Heatsink assembly with something like this ...

Looks like there's a model compatable w/ AMD HD-6970's & 6950's and it looks like a decent option for many inbetween AIR / WaterCooler guys .... I kinda like it. thumb.gif

I just don't understand that at all ? Sapphire usually was never this bad with RMA's / Customer Support from what I've read in the past confusedsmiley.png ... I wonder if they are in financial trouble or something, and have cut back on Customer Service ? worriedsmiley.gif

Please help to read our warranty policy here at first –
Then prepare your receipt and contact your retailer directly to claim the warranty service.
Thanks.", which is pish..

all i wanted to do is just buy a fan :/.. but the cards like beyond its like warranty so no point going down that route frown.gif
and i was looking at the Accelero Xtreme III or Accelero TWIN TURBO II can anyone recommend out of those two :/
many thanks and o.. i seemed of not to be added to the list of a 6950toxic holder </3

Good luck trying to buy a replacement cooler form the MFG. Aftermarket is going to be your best bet.

I know the accelereo Xtreme III is a great cooler for GPU's, but I do not know if it will work on the TOXIC.

In all honesty I would look into the Antec CLC cooler mod. Here are details. You don't have to use the 920, most use the 620 or the cheap Corsair CLC.

Accelero Twin Turbo II

I can confirm it fits the toxic and works perfectly. Installation isn't really that hard either. I recommend getting thermal tape to make the process much easier. Only trouble I had was removing the 4 pin connector on the stock fan.
