Hi!

We've designed Gigabyte mini ITX repair kit:



You can easily print those parts and attach them to GPUs using original fans screws.

this should be moved to altcoin mining (youre in the btc mining section, its all ASIC in this one). move it here:

looks interesting, can you show a pic of just the adapter without fans?

Thanks, I've reported to moderator to move this topic.
Design is very simple - assembly holes exactly fit to radiator mounting holes:

I didn't measure it. Tomorrow I'll be at my mining site and I'll check dimensions Smiley

Gigabyte Windforce fans have been crap since the Litecoin mining days.

Pretty much every Gigabyte WF Radeon 7950/7970 I had has all the fan bearings messed up.

There are a few ways to fix this for free.

One way is to take floss and pull the blade off and just put oil in the center. Should last anywhere from 1 month to 1 year.

A longer method is to seperate the bearing from the fan assembly and clean and reoil and reseal with super glue. This might last up to 3 years but you have a 50/50 chance of destroying the fan during disassembly.

Another way is to just buy the replacement fans on Aliexpress, they are dirt cheap.

@adaseb you're right. But if you own 3d printer this is cheapest solution ;-)
