    Video Card Fan

    I have a TC460 with a fan going out on the Video card. Newtek does not sell parts to end users, my rep says they do not sell parts. It is a $15 fan that I can't find anywhere. So does anyone know where to find an Evercool EC5010L 12BA 3 wire frameless fan? I have looked high and low. I had to ship the unit in for a new motherboard a while back and it was like $200 shipping counting Ins. Sure hate to do that for a simple fan

    Thanks

    Get a card with a GT750 or better GPU with at least 2GB RAM. Make sure you get a card without a huge heatsink and that has a low profile back plate and you are good to go. You may need to install the proper driver from nVidia's web site as some TC460s had older GPUs and the installed driver won't work. NewTek uses a PNY brand card but it doesn't really matter as long as it's got the GT750 GPU.

    I'd definitely replace the card and not just the fan. I've seen several examples where the fan drive circuit on the card is what failed not the actual fan.
