I've been having a problem with my X700 I bought a few months ago, runs fine and all except it seems the ball bearing in the fan is dying, making quite whirling in-consistant noises. And I'd just like to know where I can get a decent after market cooler for it. This is a picture of what my card looks like, except mines PCI-Express and is a X700, the cooling fan and heatsink looks to be the exact thing.

Reason why I need help finding one, I live in Canada, and I find it hard to find to many retailers. I usually use TigerDirect, but they don't have any GPU coolers.

You can find compatibility charts on Zalman's website but I believe the one I linked to is compatible with the x700.

Ah, thanks once again Mr Alpha, it does say compatible..with like every single card. Just different instrutions and pins for different cards, I think I'll order it soon.
