There is a ticking sound that comes out of my graphics card when it is under heavy loads, or at least I think its my graphics card making the noise. I assume its the fan spinning at full speed causing it, but I'm not 100% sure. There are no cables hitting the fan. Does anyone have any idea what might be causing it?

Bad fan bearing. How old is the card? The fans have a limited life. Look for an after market fan.

take the card out and clean the dust and gunk from the fan, might help but as lee says if it keeps happening look at getting a new card

Alright thanks I'll look in to a new card or fan....its an 8800 so don't really want to replace it quite yet, probably just get a new fan.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
