Been trying to get a fane for my 5870 card. The one fitted is just worn out, I have no idea where I can find one from. Any ideas?

Cheers and thanks for reading.

I've been seeing your questions around about your 5870 ATI card looking for scrap parts, but I'm wondering whether it would even be worthwhile to replace just the fan. I guess it'd be possible and maybe worthwhile when/if you find a used one.

But I wouldn't think it would be almost as cheap to buy one new. You missed it though.... I just sold a slightly used one for $65 to someone in the UK. If only I had seen you before.....

Anyway... Good luck with your searching.

Cheers Dune. I have two new 5850 on order, just seems a shame to have a £350 graphics card sitting idle because of a fan.

Will keep searching for parts.

You're so right. And the guy I sold it to recognized it, and alerted me to my error.

It was a ATI Radeon HD 4700/4800 just like what you see I'm running now. I had two of 'em and decided to sell one of 'em. Sorry.

I do though hope you find what you're looking for.

Why not buy an aftermarket fan from NewEgg or another e-tailer? Zalman makes some really nice ones.

The company won't sell you one?

Cheers Scott, I didn't know such a thing existed. Still waiting to hear back from them Mikey. Thing is it seems they had moved away from the reference type fan of which mine is.

I have found this though:-

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835118061

Looks good if a tab expensive.

Holy mackerel! That is expensive!

Are you on Newegg's mailing list? There's a chance it would be specially priced for preferred customers.

I know I got on their list and I've run into some real bargains! I even jumped on a 750 Gig Seagate hard-drive for $50!

The VF3000 is the new one (and probably best among Zalman's offerings for the 5xxx series). If you have reasonably good case cooling, you might try the older VF1000. These cool very well, and they can be gotten on ebay for under $40.

While somewhat pricey for a fan of course, given the expense of a 5870 to begin with, even a $50 fan might not be a bad investment (especially when the aftermarket fans often cool much better than the stock ones).

Neil. Who is the cutie in your signature?

She looks terribly familiar, but I just can't put my finger on it.

(Though I'd like to!)

It was from when you asked if could get a fan from the company Mikey. I e-mailed them and still haven't heard back from them. Sorry, I should have quoted it. :o)

I googled her and even though I can't understand French, she sings beautiful.

She's quite popular (Or was)throughout Europe but never made it in the UK. She did have one hit over here but I bet hardly anyone could remember it.

Neal, have you found your fan yet? Just curious as it's been almost a year.

Here's hoping that all is going well. :-) There's nothing sadder than a bum cruncher!

Neal; I'm not positive this will work; but it is a terrific upgrade for a 4870 card...... From ultra; a replacement Cooler
