My Fan seems to be dieing, any body have any ideas on a replacement fan?

Id prefer if it was a simple Fan swap, I don't want to rip all the heatsink off as i have no issues with the temp.

It is a Leadtek version

as can be seen here

the fan is under the grill on the top

it has a triangle screw pattern (3 screws forming a triangle)

thanks

well for just a fan replacement you would have to contact the manufacturer of the heatsink...

i would highly suggest what i posted there. yes, you will have to remove your entire heatskink and put this one on...

Its the fan for sure makes one hell of a grinding/ humming noise

Then you'll be wanting to get a Silencer compatible with your video card. I have the same one that Ripken linked to. Visit my blog page here (might display strange in IE, use Firefox or Opera) to view a step by step installation. It's extremely easy and fun. The fan offers much better heat absorption and dissipation out the rear of your case as opposed to simply blowing down on the GPU or away from it, causing the warm air to further ventilate throughout your case.

Thanks Guys

I have found someone who lives close to me with a dead 6800GT

So I am going to grab his fan tomorrow

Thanks for your effort guys

Unless you're in a Ultra Clean Computer Room, those little fans need to be taken out and thoroughly cleaned about once a year or oftener.

Little known fact: the fans can also be relubricated by using a very small syringe to inject one drop of high quality machine oil through the seal on the bottom of the fan and into the bearing cavity.

I've kept my fans running for years that way....long after the factory lubrication was used up.

Takes a few minutes of your time, but it's sure a lot cheaper than buying new fans, if you can find them.

Good Luck,

:ph34r:
