ATI won't send me a new fan!

    I think it is absolutely ridiculous to send my 9700pro back to ATI just for
    a fan
    replacement. I went through the whole RMA process and asked for just the
    fan
    to be sent because it takes 2 minutes to replace. Ati tech support replied

    Regarding a replacement fan:
    Unfortunately we do not stock replacement fans for our customers to perform
    their own repairs. You would have to send the whole card in to be repaired.

    Has anyone ever been able to get a new fan without sending the card back?

    You might want to check out an alternate solution...works better
    anyway and about $22! Artic cooler for 9700
