    VGA Fan Noise

    Have Tricaster Pro. The VGA fan is extremely noisy from the moment you boot up the Tricaster. Is this easy to replace and if so anyone know where we can buy a new fan?

    Are you really referring to the fan on the graphics card, or do you perhaps mean the primary system fan?

    VGA Fan Noise

    Thanks for replying. I am referring to the VGA card fan not the primary fan.

    Interesting - is this a new development, or has it always seemed loud?

    VGA Fan Noise

    Hi,

    It was not loud at the beginning. It started to get loud when you reboot and then would settle down. Now it doesn't settle down at all. I think I need to replace the fan. It's a very small plastic fan. I'm just wondering where I can buy a replacement.

    Anything on the inside of the case, it's best to talk to Tech Support.

    Mine did the same, loud for awhile then it stopped completely. Be careful sending it in. I sent mine in a month ago, checked on the status earlier this week - still waiting to be repaired.

    If we can confirm its just the fan we can RMA it to tech support and we can turn that around pretty quickly since its just a card or fan replacement with no real troubleshooting.
