I recently had a fan start grinding and freezing on a 5 year old XFX Radeon card. After a few back and forths with support, they are sending me a new fan unit for the card.

I got that sort of welcome solution from Gigabyte. Mine was under warranty, though I was a second-hand user.

[QUOTE=petrw1;468102]The first thing I noticed that morning is that it was no longer sending any results from the GPU. In the past when the fan was stuck it would still send results but much less; without cooling fans that GPU would do 150 vs 500 Ghz/Day.

Sadly it had gone 4 days without any slowdowns to this point.

When I looked at the GPU that morning it showed no signs of life; no fans; no LEDs.

Then I went into the NVIDIA GPU tool it gave me as message something like: "No GPU detected".

Totally guessing, I might assume something burned out and deemed it unworkable.[/QUOTE]If you do decide to "pitch it" and the shipping isn't too much to go south of your border, I might be interested in trying to revive it. It is probably a long shot, but maybe there's an SMT fuse somewhere or an FET that gave its life to save the rest of the card - maybe, even, a thermal fuse. Of course, if you're so inclined, you might look for these possibilities as well.
