  1. My Geforce 4Ti4200 was getting dusty, so i took a can of compressed air to it. It's all clean now, but the fan runs very loudly when it used to run almost silently before. Anything i can do to remedy this?

    Did you happen to blow compressed air straight onto the fan blades and watched it spin really fast? If so, you probably killed the bearings..

    You can try carefully dismounting the fan, oiling it and then putting it back. Or just go buy a new one. They're not that expensive.
