I have an MSI GTX 460 and about 2 months ago or so it started making this "rattle" type sound, I opened up the case and checked the card and found out that one of the fans ws going bad. So today my card actually started making a really loud and very annoying high pitched sound. I opened the case again and checked the faulty fan only to find out that it's very hard to spin. I tried spinning it with my finger and it wouldn't even move. I had to actually force it (yes force it) with my fingers to actually move a lil lol.
It's like if it's stuck or something.
Now my question is simple, is the high pitch sound coming from the actual GPU because it's getting too hot and it's getting ready to blow (sorry if that sounds silly lol) or is the high pitch sound coming from the faulty fan?
Btw this is the actual card just to give you guys an idea.http://www.guru3d.com/imageview.php?image=25888
