Asus Radeon R9 270, need to replace fan

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi,
I need to replace one of the fans from Asus R9 270 because it is becoming noisy. Does anyone know if I have to take off this metal casing or just it is possible to unscrew fan only?
Does anyone know what is the model of this fan so I can buy a replacement?

I don't think you can remove just the fan, they are usually built into the shroud. If it is possible to remove it, it's not a standard mounting, you'd have to ghetto mount a fan onto it if you remove it, but this would also void the warranty for the entire card.

Maybe you can just clean it, or it might qualify for RMA if it matters that much.

Another option to is to replace the cooler with an aftermarket one, I suggest Arctic Cooler Accelero Xtreme Plus iii, little pricey but worth it.

If this helped, please hit the rep button.
