Windows 7: XFX 4890 fan problem...what would they do?

XFX 4890 fan problem...what would they do?

Hey guys,

The fan on my 4890 has been making wierd buzzing noises on/off for some time now,at least 4 months,It seems to only do it though when the fans rps slows down and the fans spinning around 50% speed,If i raise the speed of the fan the noise goes but im thinking that the fan will eventualy fail?

i have contacted XFX about it and told them,They said that if i send it out to them they will have a look at it for me.... But do XFX still make the 4890 series? for replacement? or would they just replace the fan?

Also what im concerned about i said it does not do it all the time,it just randomly starts buzzing and what im worried about is that when it arrives at XFX and they test it,If it does not make a noise them they might just send it back to me and say theres nithing wrong with it!

What you guys think?

EDIT:Anyone know why my card idles at 500Mhz?....iirc it used to idle at 250Mhz on the older drivers!

My experience with XFX has been that they will test the card and repair it or replace it. In your case probably just replace the fan.
However I have sent in a card they no longer had in stock and they sent me an upgrade card.Fabe

What driver are you using? I would try to load the 10.3 driver, I've had the best luck with it on my ATi 4870 and XFX 5870 XXX Edition, no OC on either but have done so with good results for testing the cards.
