Old GeForce 9500GS, defective fan, lost cause?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have this 9500GS from an old HP machine which became unbearably noisy and needed to be replaced. I've put it aside for a while, but now I want to put it into my mom's computer.

Is there an easy way and inexpensive way to replace the fan and render this gpu useable again?

take a fan from an older gpu or cpu and use it to replace the 9500gs fan, make sure you also replace the thermal paste on the 9500gs heatsink.

Or buy a replacement gpu fan for 10$ here http://www.newegg.com/Store/SubCategory.aspx?SubCategory=576&name=VGA-Cooling
