    Sup guys, the fan on my radeon 8500 is makin a lot of noise and i assume is gonna die out soon. I need a fan replacement and have no idea what kind to buy. Also I have seen aftermarket heatsinks/fans for other radeons but am not certain if they would work with the 8500 (I assume yes but just want to check). Although I would rather just buy a new fan for the existing heatsink because im sure it'd be a lot cheaper. Thanks for the help.

    Oil it. On the back of the fan is a sticker, under it is an oil hole. One drop will do, too much and it's all over the place. Keep the surrounding area clean, and put the sticker back. Do this to all your fans while you are at it.

    Well, does it work now? If not, I have used lots of Thermaltake blue orbs
    Mostly on r9000pro's. Much better than stock and has speed sensor.
