I have an older Powercolor Radeon X700 256mb pcie card and the fan on the gpu is dead.

I need to know if I can order a new fan for the gpu from somewhere or if I have to just get a new card...!

NOTE: my card is an X700 not an X700 Pro

If you're happy with your current card and want to keep it, this should be a good replacement:

you may even be able to get a new overclock out of it :whistling:

Cool! Alright, so I will order the fan...

How do I remove the old fan and put the new one on?
Any hints?

Thanks MNOB07!

hmm I'm not seeing an online installation guide but I've ordered it before and it definately comes with instructions in the box. It's actually very easy to install, provided you have a phillips screwdriver of course! Also be sure to have a free pci slot next to x700 since this takes up a bit more room than the stock cooler.

Dude!

Taking your advice, I ordered the Artic Cooling Silencer 1...That fan is awesome!

It was an easy 30 min install(never done a gpu fan install before) and bingo! Booted the system back up and my gpu temp had dropped from 50 C (no load) to 35 C (no load).

Thanks again MNOB07!
