    graphic card fan issue

    Hi, just a quick check, one of my HIS 4870 fans developed loud sounds when fan is spinning at mid/high spd. is there still buffer stock for rma on this old model? or any help to fix it on the same day i send it in?

    should i try to lube it myself? worried will void warranty or spoil the card in the event resulting in more downtime.hehe. looking for fastest way out.

    4870 IceQ4+ izzit?
    If based on warranty sticker, warranty is actually over.
    Bring the receipt let our tech guys see.
    I'll ask them to check for u coz i found one pc.
    Look for Nick.

    roger that thanks. dunno leh think not iceQ4+. its blue single fan in the middle of plain black hsf cover. didnt realised the practice of warranty is based on the sticker,had been keeping receipts eversince. but it does makes sense as not all dealers give reciept with serial number of item purchased. Anyway. will drop by to see what can be done.

    Thank you the prompt response man. didnt expect such support.

    If you have the receipt, definitely we'll base on the receipt.
    Its a good practice to keep receipts.
    Oh, i think i know which model is that.
    Yah, just come by and let them take a look @ it.
    In the mean time, i dig deeper.
