Hi guys, I got a card that seems to have a broken fan (it tries to spin after I apply voltage and stops immediately. This process repeats every few seconds - tries and stops). Any ideas?

Any way to wire this fan directly to the power supply to bypass the card's fan controller?

The card works fine, it is just the fan and I don't want to leave it running for longer than a minute to avoid frying it.

Do you have other cards of the same model?  Some BIOSes are pretty stingy with the fan until it starts heating up.  You could always take the shroud off and point a case fan directly at the heat sink.  Did you buy the card used?  It's possible the bearings are starting to seize.

Thanks for the reply. I disassembled the card and it turned out that the fan wasn't sitting properly in its place. I just pushed it back into its place!
