Well,

My tnt2 was making quite a lot of noise.

So I decide to take out the card and rip out the fan.

In doing so I damaged/broke the fanblade...

I looked at how it all worked and that it was dirty... blackstuff.

It turns out I could have easily cleaned and oiled it and then I ll bet it
would have worked just fine.

There seemed to be also some weird white sticky stuff between the gpu and
the 'heatsink'.

I have decided to not describe how I could have cleaned it since that is not
my job.

That's the manufacturers job.

I have thus decide to create a website to start boycotting:

1. Products with fans in them without a manual describing how to clean them.

:)

( For now I just put in my tnt2 back since I doesn't seem to create that
much heat... when it dies I ll buy a fanless video card since I am getting
pretty sick of these fans without manuals how to clean them :p )

Skybuck.

'midst all this rapier wit, how *do* you clean them? Can o Air?

My brother does IT at a library and bought an air compressor. But
isn't some dust too fine even for that?

I remove the card, move to another room, then blast the HSF with compressed
air (via the little straw) - enough to spin the fan. I then proceed to
clear of dust from the rest of the card then return it to the case.

Periodically the circuit board needs to be cleaned with a brush as a residue
will settle on them, residue that seems immune to vacuums and compressed
air.

Not sure if that's the best way to clean them but it has worked for me.
