ASUS DirectCU GTX460 fan died. What do?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I've been sporting these badasses in SLI for more than a year now. I run the fans at 100% fanspeed all the time. One of them appears to have died on me. The bottom card is sandwiched between the top card and my Creative X-Fi Titanium HD, so switching them around won't do any good.

What are my options to get this issue resolved?

1.) Try to return it.

2.) But a aftermarket cooler for your GTX 460, which will come with a new fan.

3.) Mod it to attach a new fan.

4.) Go on a bulk electronics warehouse like digi-key.com and try to buy a exact replacement.
