    About a year ago I noticed heat in the PC , i realised that one fan on the Vid card (Radeon HD 7970) was not working, used a replacement set and managed to get both working again

    Noticed yesterday it has happened again with the same fan. I have ordered a replacement set again

    Anyone have any ideas why the 1 fan keeps dying ... I don't overclock the card and at default fan speed (about 28%) only 1 fan spins but if I manually push it over 80% they both work

    This is causing heat and that's affecting my Video editing and Games

    so any ideas on why this keeps happening ? My rig is old now but I cannot afford to upgrade (getting made redundant in June)

    cheers guys

    Perhaps cheap fans? That one specifically may be a manufacturers fault

    Cheers Judas I do hope its that simple, I ordered a different make of fans this time ... should be here before Christmas and then its a relatively simple replacement job.

    It's a weird coincidence, but I do think that most likely it's just a bit of bad luck.
