Like the title says. The fan is clicking. Is the card in need of replacing has anybody replace the fan successfully. what fan would you use to replace the broken one. You can probably guess i don't want to spend £450 on a new card.

Can definately get an aftermarket cooler for the card, would be replacing all the fans and the heatsink though. Should set you back about $50 or so. Have a look on whatever website you use for purchasing, for VGA coolers.
