Can I fix this with a superglue? i.e. Mighty Bond

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 



I inspected it with a light, and I saw some dry grayish stuff on the plastic screwed into the heatsink and on the little magnet on the fan itself. The magnet is in the middle of a circular board that contains chips(maybe for controlling fan speed?). If I put a drop of super glue in the plastic and press the fan blades so that the magnet will stick again and let it dry for a couple of minutes, will it work theoretically?
Magnet doesnt spin right, its the coil stuff that spins around it?
I was just using the pc as usual then I heard something from a fan. I put my ears near the case fans, its not them. remaining fans were 2 fans in my NHD14 which is 100% not going to break for some years. yeah and later the fan in the graphics card fell, only hanging because of the wires.

IS MIGHTY BOND SUPER GLUE CONDUCTIVE? please reassure before I buy one. I don't want to wait for a month after I sent it to warranty.

Those are some pretty horrible photos there, it's hard to see exactly what's going on. Take it out and take some proper photos. =)

Superglue (cyanoacrylate) is not conductive, at least not once it has dried.

I'd contact the manufacturer and get an exact replacement under warranty. I called XFX a few (like 5) years back and they mailed me a replacement heat sink / fan assembly and told me to throw out the old one. Fan failures are fairly common, especially on non-reference designs where they source the cheapest fans on the planet to save a few cents.

the problem is im in the Philippines.
I submitted a report on asus's site and i got an email saying that I have to bring it to the reseller.
The shop that I bought my components in, only gave me a 1 year warranty on the whole unit. asus supposed to have 3 years warranty on all of their cards and I am gonna wait for it for a month for sure and maybe pay for the service fee. thinking.gif

worst case scenario I have seen gpu fans for sale online. Think ebay but sure there are others. I have never needed to replace one.

So I went to my reseller, and they rejected. because its 1 year warranty was over since april 2013 LOL.
Now i have to fix it myself or go to an asus service center or buy an aftermarket heatsink cooler.
I have yet to see a shop selling aftermarket heatsinks for gpus here in the Philippines.
