In need of assistance.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I have a Diamond Radeon 4870 x2(Had it for 3 years). Everything has been fine up till yesterday. Now It makes a loud clicking sound whenever I set the fan lower than 80%. I leave it at 50% when I'm not gaming and set it up to 100% when I am. Could the fan be loose or something? Is it possible to fix?

The fan could possibly be loose yes, i have had it happen to me. there are 3 or so tiny screws for it,you can try to tighten them hopefully it solves it.

Would I need to reapply thermal compound if I were to open it up?

you dont have to open it most likely,just flip it over and look at the fan you should see 3 little screws. you can push up and down on the fan, if it has play its definitely loose.

You will have to remove the heatsink and then some to get to the fan so yes you will have to reapply thermal paste and most likely the pads.

Sorry if you do have to take it apart im just going on the cards i have used. for just the fan screws alone i havnt had to take any card apart. you can see the mounting screws through the fan blades. if you do take it apart like blazed said you will have to reapply the thermal paste.
