5870 Cooler question
I think my 5870's fan is dying. After a few hours of gaming (where the fan goes around 30%-40%), and stop playing, I hear a weird whirring noise. It is not a normal sound, or at least I don't think so. It stops making a whirring noise after awhile.
I was looking at some cooler replacement, and the cheapest cooler I found for the 5870 was ARCTIC COOLING Accelero XTREME for $80 (or $50 on ebay). I think that price is a bit high for me right now. Is there some less inexpensive alternatives I can do/use?
