XFX HD 6790 Fan problem

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Ok, so my fan it´s not working anymore, I dont´t even know why but when i spin it with my fingers it feels harder than normal and when it´s plugged it doesn´t spin. So do you guys know where can i get a new one exactly like the original one?

How do i meassure the size of the fan so i can buy the replacement?

I have the same card. Im sorry to hear that your fan doesnt work. Im just curious how long you had the card before your noticed the fan went out? Also its to late now but if your card was still under warranty you could have had xfx replace it. If you haven't done so by now your best chance is to replace the whole cooler with an aftermarket one. Just my opinion since you voided the warranty. Hope that helps somewhat. thumb.gif

You can only get a replacement from the manufacturer of that card but the replacement/shipping costs would be astronomical and pointless even if they allowed it.

You will get much better temps from an aftermarket cooler regardless.

either slap on a bigger fan on your card with either zip ties or screws if possible or RMA your card.

 

i had broken the fan of my xfx 6770.xfx said i should contact my local dealer for a replacement if its under warranty.if not,request the local dealer to order a fan(which the dealer said was not possible.)

 

so you are left with either

  1. RMAing your whole card
  2. or zip tieing a new fan
  3. or investing in a new GPU cooler(costs north of USD30)

What does it say on the fan? There should be some numbers/letters on it that with fan name can be cross-referenced to find a replacement fan in the $5-10.00 range. I can't read the label in picture.
