OK hello peeps.
First of all this morning my XFX RADEON HD6870 the fan started acting up(sounded like a dried out fan bearing) and when i took out the fan peeled away the circle sticker there was no RUBBER PLUG i was like
TUTORIAL ON HOW I SOLVED THE NOISE PROBLEM
I used the HDD magnet to magnetize the screwdriver because i did not want any screws falling back inside of the card , that would of bin a headache if one of those screws got caught between the heat sink fins.
REMOVING THE MOUNTING SCREWS
NOTE u don't have to take apart the whole video card just to get to the fan. HERE IS ALL THE MOUNTING SCREWS for removing the fan
just keep turning the fan blade to clear the screw heads so u can get to them
FAN IS REMOVED
I took the surgical blade and just nicked the edge of the sticker peeled it off and i was shocked to see NO RUBBER PLUG
There was this HARD PLASTIC BACKING cover looking thing
Then i took the SURGICAL BLADE and create a starting point for the drill bit because i did not want the bit to go sliding all over the place.
SO while carefully drilling this was the result, I got to see the the SHAFT, I then dropped some oil inside and finger spun the blade for the oil to penetrate into the bearings
LAST THING to do was cleaned out the excess oil,place back the sticker installed back the fan with the 3 screws ''BE CARE FULL NOT TO STRIP THE THREADS'' and then ur all finished!!
