Question about PNY GeForce 9800 GTX, PCI Express Video Card

1 Answer

New graphics card has extremely noisy fan

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!

quite right you are ,, it is a G-card problem,, and its supposed to get hot but not very very very hot !!! thats way too hot,, chances are the fan aint cooling it propperly,, or it could be the card is just no good.. I myself only use Radion cards,, but i know these are expensive so a lot of ppl use G-Force in brands such as PNY.. If i were you i would get a new card ,, but before i came out with that extra money I would remove the fan from the graphics card,..,, attach a bigger one for a pc case ,, then i would power it by connecting it directly to my computers power supply.. and hope that saves the extra money.. Let me know what happens ,, Regards dark..

You should not have a problem doing that. Your motherboard has a PCI Express X16 slot available. If you have problems when running intensive gaming then you may need to upgrade your PSU to a higher watttage. The 9800 GT is very power hungry. One problem you may have is that if your computer is a HP Slimline there might not be enough room inside the case for that card and you might need a low profile graphics card.

Card started making loud clicking noise i have tried blowing dust out of it when i start my computer within a few minutes clicking starts again


Hi, couple main reasons to get loud clicking in a computer. First is the hard drive, so if you can turn the system off and disconnect the power and the information cable from the hard drive, yes your computer will not boot all the way back into windows but that is ok since you just want it running for awhile to see if the clicking stops. Next thing would definitely be the fans, any fan in the system, the blade part of the fans can get loose sometimes and start to hit the sides as it spins around, you need to be sure about which part it is that is causing it, it can come from the power supply fan, the case fan, the video card fan, the cpu fan, and you might have more than one case fan, test by disconnecting one at a time just make sure to disconnect the device too so you do not over heat anything. Once you identify which fan just replace it, if its something like power supply or video card, unfortunately you might want to look into either warrantying the part or buying a new one.

Noisy graphics card


If the fan is really loud and the card or the computer is out of warranty, replace the fan or the whole heatsink on the video card.

ATI radeon 9800 pro graphics card


Did you try the card on another PC? Maybe the motherboard is Expiring. I recommend you change to a new motherboard. because, sometimes when motherboards get too old, the pins inside the AGP and PCI slots get fried and won't give out enough power. try the graphic card on another PC.
