Annoying noise

coming from the fan on my video card. I a old geforce4 (correction I think its a 4 :P) ti 4200. I'm 99% sure its coming from the fan as I've taken everything apart. It sounds like its hitting something but theres really nothing to hit no wires dust anything. I totally disconnected the fan from the rest of the heatsink and it kinda stopped making noise but when I attach it back to the heatsink it makes the sound again. Will I be destroying my video card if I remove the fan and just leave like the heatsink?

It's not a good idea to run without the fan, but it's most likely that the bearing in the fan that's failing, but you can get replacements that are inexpensive.

No, normally I just get a generic chipset cooling fan, the kit is about $10 from CompUSA and should fit pretty well, but if you take the old fan with you then you can get a size comparisson.

oh ok

I found that, its kinda near me plus I wanna buy a case from them too.

You wouldnt happen to know how to tell the difference between like " Note: All Lian-Li cases purchased from Monarch come with ball bearing case fans and come packaged in original Lian-Li packaging. Lower prices from other merchants may indicate the use of cheaper sleeve bearing case fans that are louder and do not last as long or not using original Lian-Li packaging. " (pulled from monarch website)

the Ball bearing case fans and sleeve bearing? haha sorry for all the random questions.

No, you can use the same power supply. The motherboard might have a 24-pin power supply connector, but it's backward compatible with the 20-pin. My motherboard is fine leaving the other 4 pins empty, but some motherboards might require you to use an adapter to fill them in, I'm not sure.
