Ok, I've got 3 Gigabyte cards at my work. 2 7970s and 1 280x. The cooling fan shrouds on them are falling apart due to the oil in the air here. I've got one still working but I need to replace to cooling on them right away.

Any idea where I could find aftermarket cooling that doesn't cost an arm and a leg? I'm asking here rather than the Wanted section because I'm looking for retail establishments, and given the fan failures on the 7970 AMD cards, I figure it will be useful to other folders.

Thanks!

Oil in the air?! How is that safe to breathe? What industry are you in? <Many other questions>

You must fill in some details here.

I will add that I did not use a zip tie and one of these fell off and the card overheated and died. Otherwise, they worked great. I bought three.

That was what I was hoping for, thank you.

Zip-ties will be used.

Oh, and this is what we use for a cutting fluid at my work, and while we have air handlers and filters, it does get into the air:

And this is what my card looks like at the moment:
