8800GT Fan Dead

3 Jan 2008
Devon, UK
Hi there.

Just bought an 8800GT off of ebay brand new, still sealed (but not from a shop) and it appears that the fan is dead. Card works fine as I ran it in a game for a few seconds (didn't want the heat to build up too much so quit quickly and switched off).

I am obviously in the middle of contacting the ebayer and trying to sort out an RMA, but for a fuss free solution, I was thinking of buying a 3rd party vga cooler. Can anyone recommend a 3rd party vga cooler that is cheap? I'm talking like £10 - £15 tops.
