Broken fan blade. Help!

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Ok so atm ive got 2 msi gtx 760's, the red and black twin frozr ones. and one of the fan blades has come off so what im asking is does anyone know where i can get a replacement fan or even a replacement twin frozr cooler?

step one would be trying to order a new one from MSI. I've ordered replacement PSU fans from cooler master and it was always pretty cheap.

Failing that you can get a 760 cooler off ebay. If the card is reference underneath the cooler any brand cooler that uses a reference board should fit.

I would disagree, step one should be filling out the RMA form and seeing if you qualify. You can also contact their hardware rep for OCN via email changalex@msi.com

Thanks for the replies folks.

Problem with rma is a psu wire must have came loose because i was playing bf4 then there was a ungodly sounds and the case was thudding. So i quickly turned off the plug and looked inside and a power cable for the bottom card had gone up into the fan.

I explained this on the msi forums and they said that voids the warranty.
I wondered if anyone know of anyone/anywhere that would have another fan/heatsink i could buy.

a set of replacement fans for twin frozer seem to be going for a bit under $20 on ebay. There's a good chance MSI will seel you a set cheaper. I'd ask em. I was getting replacement psu fans for $4

Thanks again for the replies.

When I posted on the msi forum a mod flat out said that msi don't sell replacement fans or parts.
Would there be someone else to do with msi I could contact or would they just give me the same response ?

I would contact them, perhaps contact the MSI rep here via the email I posted above and ask him if he can redirect you.

I just sent him an email asking.
I'm gonna ask a pc store by where I live see if they have any heat sinks off dead cards or something like that.

Hmm, tries to send a email to changalex@msi.com twice and it keeps failing. Is that the right email address ?
