VTX 6950 Dual Fan Rattle/Grinding noise?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Ok so ive recently got a vtx6950 2gb from ebay, the red one with the dual fans, the card works perfectly and temps never go over 70c.

Only problem is, the fans are making this grinding noise? It varies in pitch going high low high low.. ALmost as if the sound is getting closer then further away?

Is there any ways to fix this?

Thanks peeps!

Thats most likely not the fans but your graphics cards capacitors squealing.
