If the fan is the cause then you might try lubing it with something like Rem-Oil (in a bottle, not a spray), sewing machine lube, fishing reel lube, light machine oil, 3 in 1 oil (the one without the penetrant), or some other oil that comes in a tube or bottle. Sprays are too thin and don't hold up long enough to be useful. You have to take the fan assembly off of the card, peel back the sticker on that side of the hub, remove the rubber plug, put 1 to 3 drops of oil on the center shaft, spin the fan by hand a couple of times to allow the lube to seep down the shaft, replace the rubber plug, wipe any excess off of the hub with a clean paper towel and some Isopropyl Alcohol (not rubbing alcohol as that contains petroleum by-products that will leave an oily residue that will prevent the label from sticking), the replace the sticker. You might need to use a glue stick to help the label stick to the surface. Remount the fan assembly, and see if it's quieter now. It might take a minute or two for the new lube to spread completely and quiet it down so be patient.

If this is the problem your gpu temps will probably go down as well since a fan witha poorly lubed bearing won't spin as fast as it should reducing it's cooling efficiency.


And yes, those caps look fine to me too.

Thanks Papa... I will have to get some lube tomorrow and try that. I really do appreciate all the help everyone has given me. Still learning a lot of this hardware stuff.. so thanks!

That's what we are here for. Us older more experienced (and sometimes crotchety ) guys helping the younger less experienced ones. We don't always know what to do, but we've made so many mistakes over the years that we can usually tell you what won't work.

Just tell them what won't work? i'm sure if we got together we could write an encyclopedia collection of "stuff that won't work"

BTW, capacitors look fine.

Don't be sorry, that is one of the reason what forums are for, that and showing off, complaining, and don't forget the trolling here and there

Well, looks like i just took a HUGE loss. First off, my son LOVES his Computer. Loves the green scout, the fans, the noise from them, he says it sounds like a jet engine.

Now for my loss. I recently traded my gtx 570 for a 580 from another member on here. My gtx 570 was damaged and was sent back to me. I do not have pics, usps took them for me whent to try to pick it up. The box was cut open when i arrived, missing the $200 money order and it literally looked like someone jumped up and down on the box. the dam PCB for the gtx 570 was cracked almost in half. Here is the kicker, the wife sent it off and only insured it for $100. So looks like ill be out over $400 till i atleast get the replacement $200 money order refunded. Just started a new job and my first check is going to go to fix this whole BS ordeal. I am done with USPS. after the HAF 932 incident i should have listened to my gut and not used them anymore. But the whole $220 check they sent me made me give them one last chance. I am now officially screwed and sooo pissed right now. glad my hydrocodones are starting to kick in. gonna help me relax so i dont pop a dam artery.

I'd say with all that new fangled trickery you got in your rig hardware wise, you're choking the hell out of it all with that 9600GT. Try and fix it for the time being, but ditch that sucka for something that's gonna let the rest of your gear ROCK!!!
