6600gt fan gone

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I have a 2nd older PC and just found out that the 6600gt card fan is dead.

Just wondering for daily office use, how long will this card last w/o the fan working?

I tried looking to see if I could replace the fan, but it does not look like I can take it off w/o breaking the plastic bolts that are holding it to the card.

If it does burn out, will it damage the Mobo if I just continue using it till it toots to the end of life?

(never had a video card die on me).

Thanks for any input.

If you have an extra fan, just have it set up so its blowing on the card.

But as long as the card isn't put under any heavy use, it should be fine fanless.

Though, I doubt it would take the motherboard with it. Though, its quite possible that it could overheat and shut down your rig.

U think this is better then nothing to put close to the 6600 dead fan?

No, because that is a intake fan. You need a normal 120mm fan or something which will blow onto the card.

Running a case fan on it will be just fine.

I zip-tied a 60mm fan to my old 9700pro.

Works just fine.

If you don't want to zip tie a fan on, here are a couple solutions that should work: VANTEC PCI Slot Cooler and Antec Spot Cooler.

There is nothing wrong with the card, it serves its purpose.
It just needs a fan or some sort of cooling and I am sure it will work perfect.
