.. btw. i don´t think that 15 or 20 $ for a spare (IF u have already damaged pcb) is not worth the thing; my gtx 460 hawks still do a good job each (single card) - even with games like crysis, gta iv, tomb raider 3, asassins´s creed 4 or dayz (arma) in almost high resolution with 1920x1200; but - just MY opinion! smile.gif

Will this fan work ?

Lubricating the Video card fans are seems more harder than the Case fans.

My current video card fan used accelero twin turbo pro model, one fan has been down.

I tried to lubricate the fan, but the fan is completely sealed,
there's no access to the circle-rings, i can't lubricate it.

Read this thread, but i'm already too lazy to fix the fan,
i might just want to buy a new card next time.

My current video card max temp: when reach 99% GPU load is around ~85C.
but averagely 60-70C with non heavy games. Idles around ~35 ish C.
still pretty good though even with only one fan working.(plus i have a pretty good case+fans)

One question:
what is the best fan(best bearings) from Video cards manufacture? (msi, asus, gigabyte, etc??)

Also the fan's movement is quite stiff due to which it is not spinning and temps going 90+. Any way I can fix that ?
Fixed that by making a hole just beside the center with a VERY hot needle and then putting in a drop or two of oil

This is great and all but how do you connect two of these onto the PCB? I think there is only one header available.

There is space for 2 2pin fans too, on the right side.

But that doesn't matter as those fan didn't worked. Hole distance need to be 40mm, but these fan have 42

Now I'm just gonna order these

EDIT : and then will sell the GPU. Seriously, lesson learnt, don't keep the GPU after warranty expires

Some should I guess. Just have to find which ones do.
