Razer Launches Ultrathin Gaming Grade Mousing Surface 
Razer have been relatively quiet on the news front since the launch of the Razer Mamba, but today a new product has entered the spotlight, albeit a considerably less exciting piece of kit. The Razer Sphex is the first Gaming Grade Desktop Skin with a distinctive ultrathin form factor. The Sphex becomes the world's thinnest gaming-grade mousing surface. How thin exactly is not known, but we will take their word for it.
The mousing surface has been designed to work  with both optical and laser mice offering support for a plethora of gaming mice. The surface is made of an extremely durable material allowing it to be wiped and washed repeatedly should the user wish to do so, without having any adverse effects on the tracking or finish of the surface. The Sphex is also able to adhere to your desk or whatever surface you use your mouse on, and can be detached for use elsewhere should the occasion arise.
The Sphex is an ample size for most gamers at 320mm by 230mm, offering plenty of room for comfortable movement of the mouse without having to continually move the mouse from the edge of the surface back to the middle. The thin design offers a restrictionless gaming environment allowing the user to focus on the game and not on the equipment he/she is using at the time. The Sphex as you would imagine will be available worldwide and costs US: $14.99, Europe €14.9.

I have a pretty 2 month old PNY 9800 GT 1GB.
Something is wrong with the fan. It's making an annoying sound like something is stuck in it. I aired it out and checked it, there's nothing interacting with the fan. What could be the problem?

It idles @ 70C is that too hot?

I do seem to remember the 8800GT normally making fan sounds that weren't constant. Kinda like a wurrr-slowdown-wurrr-slowdown-repeat, whilst under load in a game. (with normal nvidia drivers and no tools)

70 idle... hmmmph it would ofc depend on the rest of ur rig's situation, but I would have expected 60-something cos I don't remember these cards being that cool.

I'm basing this ofc on the assumption that the 9800 is more or less the same 8800 with only some pcb component differences.

The cards may look slick with the full on black single slot look, but the cooler isn't the best imo.

Temps at full load would be the thing to keep an eye on. 110 is too damn hot (imo), 80/90 is probable. Being at 70 idle doesn't leave much scope for increasing.

Heck if it's new(ish) replace it, u got nothing to lose there.

Take a pic of your rig dude.

The fan might be touching the outer casing, but in my experience 70is too hot, use rivatuner to turn the fan up to 100% and see how bad it gets. My Folder's with fan @ 100% dont normal even hit 70c at 100%

Jeez u running that @ 600 mhz ? 70 @ full load on that card is hell low.

Something is defo wrong.
I would seriously consider an aftermarket cooler if you are running THAT low in terms of clocks.
