My System Specs

Default Powercolor 4890 Fan/Shroud/Heatsink

Bit of a longshot here but if anybody has the shroud and fan from this video card, I need the fan to replace my broken one:
http://ncix.com/products/index.php?sku=41845

Tried plugging the fan to a molex while testing it out since I kept getting artifacts after playing crysis for 40min or so. Plugging it into molex didn't work but when I put it back on the on-board video card header, it seems to be dead(probably fried the pwm circuit) So if anybody has this fan, I'd like to buy it off you.

Can't find a way to contact powercolor in Canada to request just the fan...

Ever thought of buying a new aftermarket heatsink?

Edit#1: How long have you bought it for? Stores will most likely take it back if the fan is faulty

Lol, I've barely used it for 2 days. If it had a stock pcb with the stock cooler, I'd reuse the stock heatsink base for vrm cooling and grab an accelero but the non-stock pcb this thing has is a pain in the rear to cool.

I have one of thse, still using though, but my old Thermalright HR-03 cooler I had laying around fit great, and cooled awsome, left the stock VRM/mosfet whatever they are coolers on, and didn't need any ramsinks since stock doesn't use any anyways, cooled awsome. I think it was an HR-03 I had for an 8800GT before.

Hows your temps when running games Terence, probably shouldn't be using this thread to talk about this since it's in BST. Temporarily solved the issue by strapping a 140mm antec fan onto it. Also getting some weird fuzziness to some parts of my screen, think its got some slight memory errors. Does Powercolor have an RMA depot in Canada or is it to the states?
