GPU Coolers

Discussion in 'Off Topic' started by Alexander Rhodes, Aug 4, 2011.

  1. Ok, so I'm getting my old PC back, it works fine but there are a couple of issues.

    I run 2 GeForce 8600GT cards, and on one of them, the fan has seized up, and the other the fan's bearings seem to have gone walkabout. Does anyone know if it can be repaired easily by myself, and if not, does anyone have any links to some cheap, mid range coolers?
     
  2. i had a 8600 that had a heatsink instead of a fan, so i put a blower next to it worked a treat and only cost a fiver. if yours is the type with a heatsink with a fan in the centre it could work.
     
  3. It is indeed, but I plan on overclocking them again, so I'll need the fans working efficiently to dissipate heat.

  5. Cheers James, It's a little over my budget though, I have £20 and need to sort both cards out lol. On the other hand, I cleaned my 2 case fans that weren't working, and they began to work immediately after, didn't work for my cards though lol. I might also look into some DIY solutions too.
