Gigabyte gtx 670 windforce fan rattle

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Somebody on this forum decided to sell me a gtx 670 with a rattling fan mad.gif I would like to repair it myself to save time/money but I can't figure out where to apply sewing oil. I keep reading that you should be able to apply oil behind the sticker. I peeled away the sticker on the back of the rattling fan and here is what I see:

Contrary to what I've read, there doesn't seem to be a cover to remove in order to access the oil reservoir. Can somebody point me in the right direction?

Assuming you have Gigabyte gtx 670 WindForce 3x I would buy a couple of Arctic F12 TC fans, ziptie them onto cooler, slip the sensor between cooler and PCB and run it. Have done this myself and seen many others do it and get a cooler and quieter running GPU. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
VTX3D Radeon HD 7950 X-Edition V3 with cover removed and2x Arctic F12 TC case fans mounted. Was 70c now 50-60c, ultra settings, 60fps unless particularly detailed cut scenes.
