Purchase my card in 2015, one of the fans have failed. Its been a total PAIN going through XFX tech support. Messaging back and forth. Last week finally called XFX they stated the replacement fans are out of stock and to look on AMAZON. I have and ordered a replacement cooler as per XFX. The replacement wont work due to the XFX fans are fixed into a click-in housing. So i'm stuck..back to playing message tag on xfxforce.com tech page.
Don't some digging and apparently this failure is common with this particular card...and have seen XFX techs state this in forums..

It looks like a standard fan failure. Fortunately, we send these out free of charge! (varies by region)
Do you have a ticket at xfxsupport.com? I can request a parts shipment for you.
Mark at XFX
Please help...only found a so-called replacement out of China...but this site seems sketchy..
A fan problem is why I stopped dealing with XFX. AliExpress is like a Chinese child spawn of Amazon and eBay, everything is sold by a third party but as a store format. Realistically that's your only option, as XFX dropped their lifetime warranty long ago and now uses the "standard" 2 year warranty.
Did you contact XFX? I have had excellent luck with them selling me replacement fans cheap for out of warranty cards. It is worth asking them. In fact they are the only card maker that has ever been willing to send me a replacement fan. The other just want to sell you a new card.
Been playing tag with them in their tech support ticket system. I even called them and got no help. Was directed to get a replacement cooler for the card through Amazon, they don't have any for this particular card. (facepalm)
