Default Noisy fan on my video card

Hello, I have a NVIDIA GeForce 7300 GS and I'm having a problem with the fan on it being noisy. Are there any simple solutions to this?

3. get a new cooler altogether

the Zalman VF700-AlCu is pretty good, and not too expensive

I got an Arctic Cooling NV Silencer 5 for my 6800GS about a month after I got the card because I was sick of the noise. It is almost silent now. I've heard very good things about Zalman also.

I would rather go the Zalman route,I've seen a couple review's on those Silencer's and lot's don't sit properly leaving gap's between the memory and the heatsink
