Hi everyone Could somebody teel me what replacement fan i need to get for my vga card...PEGATRON NVIDIA GEFORCE GT 230 as the one on there now is makeing such a noise it's slowly driving me mad. I have taken the fan off and cleaned it several times but the noise just does not stop. On the fan it says Y.S. TECH DC BRUSHLESS FAN DC12V 0.16A , YD124509EL-N . It's off a HP PAVILION ELITE 490 UK if that helps. I have searched but not sure which one i need , i have also contacted hp but no joy. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks Steve

Is this your GPU? GT 230
I think you are going to be struggling to find an after-market cooler for the GT 230, it might be simpler to upgrade the whole GPU.
You could try a little oil on the fan spindle but I have found that once these rather basic fans start to make a noise there is little you can do to permanently shut them up.
