    So it would appear the bearing in my graphics cards AIO watercooling fan is toast as the fan is making loud rattling noise. I want to replace it so I pull the cover off the gpu to see if I could just unplug the fan and plug a new on in but the 4 pin connector is merged with the pump power as well. https://imgur.com/gallery/loe815W

    Is it easy to feed the pump wires into a new fan header? I’ve never played around with rewiring fan headers before.

    Or does anyone have another idea to replace the fan? Thanks in advance

    Email gigabyte, see if they'll just give you a new fan. If you explain the situation they may even rma it for you for free (if out of warranty)

    most fans have a little rubber/plastic seal plug that is under a sticker.Dig the plug out add a few drops of oil and refit.

    Pretty sure those things have a 4 year warranty so you almost certainly are covered.
