I have a Inno3d Ti200 and I just noticed the system temp was getting a bit hot - the fan on the vga card had stopped!

Any ideas about a utility for checking the vga fan is running on the card?

Any help would be great,

Thanks

David

The only way of monitoring it is if the fan has 3 wires - 2 for power, 1 for RPM sensing. Otherwise, there's really no way of doing it. It might be possible to remove the fan assembly and clean it off. You might also be able to peel off the labels to expose the bearings, and put a drop of oil in there.

plug your fan to the power output from the PSU...

even though you can't monitor it, you can be sure that it is runnin' (otherwise the FAN or PSU is failing )
