For some time I have been having a fan issue which it would just be very loud. Louder probably at slower speeds ironically. Tried taking it apart and running compressed air through it to no avail. I believe its the fan bearing itself. Tried talking to ASUS and I can easily replace the fan, but they will not negotiate to send me one. I didnt want to be stuck with a dead computer for a week so to me thats not a choice. (they also wouldnt send me a speaker replacement for my blown N50VN laptop speaker, you're so accommodating ASUS!) They dont even have a way to BUY replacement parts. I dont really trust ebay but regardless I couldnt find a 5870 fan replacement. The only other one is from zalman and has bad reviews + very expensive. Any ideas? Im not happy with Asus right now.
