I'm trying to find out remotely what type of video card I have in order to get a fan for it, i'ts made by ATI (it's actually manufactured by ATI and not a third party company), the drivers only say Radeon HD 5700 series. I tried to compare clock speed but didn't find the correct one, and programs that detect (eg. Everest Ultimate) still only say 5700.

Is there a way to tell the exact model?

HWMonitor will tell you the actual model number:

It's probably physically written on, or on a sticker, on the card, especially if it's that new. This is the simplest way. (You have to remove it to change the fan ANYWAY so...)

I'm not home and I'm logging in remotely, I was hoping to find out without going back and forth. – Mankind1023 Jan 19 '11 at 15:16
@Murtez - Oh! Well in that case, you might be out of luck - I think these cards report themselves generically to pretty much everything. :/ Hopefully somebody will know the trick. – Shinrai Jan 19 '11 at 15:17

Did you try GPU-Z? It should show you what you want.

That just says 5800 Series in the screenshot :D, I need the exact model, same problem I have. – Mankind1023 Jan 19 '11 at 15:16
@Murtez: It says not only 5800 but also lots of info like GPU (Cypress), Technology (40nm), Die Size, Release Date, BIOS version, Device ID, etc. Aren't these enough for you? – Mehper C. Palavuzlar Jan 19 '11 at 15:19
@Murtez - Well, you could take the detailed specs and use that to determine exactly the card you have, but it is a bit of legwork. – Shinrai Jan 19 '11 at 15:20
No, those won’t work; what Murtez wants is the model number, like what you see on the AIW9600 fan in this shot. – Synetech Jul 6 '11 at 5:57
