Ever since I cleaned out my computer fans the other day, the video card fan has been making noise. It is a three - four year old XFX ATI Radeon HD 4870, and the noise keeps getting worse. The card has not been suffering from overheating when I play Guild Wars 2. The fan does make it so I have to wear headphones so I am not driven crazy by the noise. It's not even constant. It just comes and goes. Sometimes the noise is loud and other times it's quiet. Like I said it's not overheating, and I have not had any problems with playing the game. It's just the noise.
I have watched videos of people taking the card apart to repair the fan, and honestly I am pretty intimidated with what it entails doing. I have a small background in computers, but I have never taken a video card apart.
I also do not have a lot of money right now, and I really can not replace this card with something equivalent to it. (All though I really do not care if it's only a 1 DVI, as I have not used the dual-monitor option on this card in years.)
I have an Intel i3 2100 3.10GHz + 500W PSU +6GB RAM
What would you suggest I do?
