I pulled up on the case around the fan but no help. Could be a wire inside. It is not my job to fix it so I will swap it out for another card.

At least I found it and can swap it.
I had this issue with case fans and a memory cooler before. They had to be replaced. I would contact the manufacture and see if they will issue you an RMA for that reason.

Wondering this as well.
Also, does anyone have CFX 6850s in Eyefinity? I plan on going multi-monitor in a few months, and I want to know what GPU set up I should go with.

Hi guys, I have just joined overclock.net because I have the ASUS 6870 model and I am very, very happy with it, its much better than the XFX GTX 260 Black Edition I had previously.
I only looked at an ATI as an option because my board doesn't support SLI.
Chuffed to bits with this card, I will be looking to get another one when the price drops, though I am aware I will probably need to update my PSU at the same time though.
I am an avid gamer, mostly FPS and RPG, I am currently playing Crysis again and am getting a steady 45-80 fps at 1920x1080 with all the settings on high and 4x AA and the only reason it goes below 55 fps is when I am crawling through foliage.
This card is amazing, I read a review reguarding graphics cards and the test on a 5870 in Crysis averaged 56 fps and that was at 1620x1080, considering the 6870 has fewer transistors, a lower power usage, has yet to benefit fully from new drivers and is cheaper than any of the other cards in its performance class it is a stunning bit of kit.
The other game I have tested it on is BFBC2 and even with all the setting maxed out and the res at native I am still getting a solid 60 fps!!!
Anyway I am glad to be here and am sorry to hear some of you have had problems, good luck sorting them out.
