Question about PNY GeForce 9800 GTX, PCI Express Video Card
I just installed a 9800 GT card in my brand new HP computer. The fan on the card is so loud, I'm ready to rip the card out. What can I do about it? does it need lubrication? My box just says 9800 GT on it, I can't tell what it is exactly.
Thanks for your help. Jan Squillace
It's probably a Nvidia GeForce 9800 GT
I'm wondering if it is new. Older cards do sometimes have fans that fail. Unfortunately, they are usually fans with bushings, not bearings, and when they fail, there's not much you can do about it. Yes, I have lubed them and it helped for a while. If you do that, I'd use a really light oil, like a sewing machine oil, and very little of it.
Heck, it's loud now, so you really can't hurt it!
Let me know what happens. You can click on my name and choose "ask me" if you need to contact me.
