Alright guys
My GPU is a XFX R9-280X-TDBD Black Edition one of the fans has stopped working which is causing it to overheat and results in my PC shutting down.
I've had this PC for about 3 years and hasn't been upgraded.
I'm just asking for some general advice on what I should do and if I should just upgrade the card or purchase a replacement as it is no longer under warranty

What are your temperatures under load?
Can you fix the fan yourself?
I'd attempt fixing it myself, then probably contact XFX and see if they can/will do anything about it.

I was on the Phone with Scan the company I bought it from and they said it most likely will need replaced as it's very difficult to get the right size fan for the R9 280X
As for the temperatures I'm not sure
