My System Specs

Default Sapphire 6950 2GB Fan failing

Hello HWC Members,

So as the title says i have a Sapphire 6950. When i put my ear up to my computer there is a clicking come from the video card. I put my finger in the middle of the fan and the noise goes away. I went into the ATI CC software for the video card and i had the fan speed at 30%. I put the fan speed up to 50% and i have not heard the clicking noise again. Is this something i should worried about? The card is still under warranty, but everything is running fine. Even when the fan was making the clicking noise the temps were fine. I have triple monitors running and I was running wow and minecraft at the same time and only getting temps around 63 degrees c.

Any feedback would be great.

Thanks!
w0z

Sounds pretty familiar and really nothing really you can do about it, but it does not mean that the fan is dying at all.
