Hello,
I have a Sapphire GTO2 succesfuly modded to 16p, overclocked, aftermarket cooler (arctic cooling ATI Silencer). Everything worked fine for a year, but yesterday I realized that my fan is rotating in an opposite direction. ATI Silencer usualy blows the air out from the case, but my one is blowing the air inside the case. This is not due to bios flashing, as the fan has been working for a long time and with a lot of flashing. It just has suddenly changed its direction. Maybe that the installation of Windows Vista is the reason, but this is mostly improbable, as now I have Win XP installed and still the same problem.
Could someone please advise?

Thanx

you should check a review of the fan

i don't know about the cooler but if it is plugged in wrong that might happen.
voltage in the wrong wire

The conector is plugged correctly, as there is only one way how to plug it and it was working fine before.
Maybe this will be the only solution to exchange plus and minus wires.
