    Hi,

    So my hd4890 fan stopped working. And now when fan is not working, GPU overheats raelly quickly, in minute or two. But why my fan is not working? Ive tried taking the fan out of my gpu and connecting it to other gpu and it was working on other gpu corectly. Does this mean that my gpu has fried? ;/

    my psu is fortron 600w

    gpu is xfx

    That's one reason why I prefer to use video cards with heatsink cooling instead of fan cooling.

    I would replace the video card.

    Its too expensive to throw it away just because of that. Im using pc case cooler glued to a gpu now :D Actually it cools it much better, but still. does this mean that this is gpu hardware error or maybe ther might be smth wrong with gpu bios? :)

    I'm not a hardware expert nor a gamer, so someone else is going to need to give you advice.
