Graphics Card Fan Not Spinning

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Unfortunately one of the fans on my 560 have stopped spinning, it attempts to spin up makes some groan like noise and stops for a couple seconds. I checked out the fan and there doesn't appear to be anything preventing it from spinning. I'm going to RMA the card, but I thought I might check first to make sure this isn't something simple.

Any help is appreciated.

It's probably the bearings, you'll need to replace the fan.

Might be a good time to look at aftermarket cooling for the card.

Yes it will, I'm just saying if you didn't want to send your card off, you could improve your cooling on it biggrin.gif

Ok thanks, but the TF2 cooler is good enough for me, and I'd rather not void my warrenty by replacing the cooler wink.gif

Thanks for the help.
