Has anyone had a fan go bad yet? What's your story?
Even in the event that an attacker gains more than 50% of the network's computational power, only transactions sent by the attacker could be reversed or double-spent. The network would not be destroyed.

I clean em out regularly based on a Google Calendar reminder to prevent that sort of thing.

I did however have a 5830 go bad while hashing, though it was likely a dud since it dies within 3 days of purchasing.

Yep, bought an after market cooler. Now it's quieter and runs cooler though it's bigger than the normal ones and takes up more space than 2 slots.

One of my cards started screeching at me, turned out the motor in the fan was dodgy. It's within 28 days, thank god, but in the meantime I'm down to half hashing power Cry
