Well i decided to turn off my pc for one night after 1 week running it straight on 65% fan speed (around 62 C stable). Then I wake up, and turn on my pc and I hear this like rickety noise... im like WTF! I then find out its my GFX so i pull it out and clean off some dust (yeah my pc got a lot of dust this month...) I put it back, still making that LOUD ASS noise.. im like shit.. now i need to change my GFX... but then i touch the fan slightly (pushing it) and it stopped making that noise.... so im wondering should i go and do this with my new 5870 or is mining not profitable? and how long do your cards last on maximum usage, 60-70% fan, and around 55 C to 62 C.

I am using BTCGUILD until deepbit fixes their shit.

Even if you use Bitcoin through Tor, the way transactions are handled by the network makes anonymity difficult to achieve. Do not expect your transactions to be anonymous unless you really know what you're doing.

Sounds like the bearings on the fan got dirt and dust.   If you have any teflon grease for guns, or Mil-tech1, you can put a drop on them to keep them lubed up.
