I just broke the fan blades on a GTX560Ti

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
My brother just replaced his video card and gave me his old one to sell. I was blowing all the dust out, and one of the fans blades just broke off all over the place. Now I know why he was complaining of loud noise and stuff, because that fan doesn't spin freely, think it was seized up. Anyways is it possible to replace the broken fan? Original or aftermarket is fine with me.

Seems the DS cooler is a reference designed PCB, so any after market cooler that supports the reference 560ti should fit.

According to artic's website, this cooler is compatible.

If you want to go a cheaper route, you could probably ghetto mount a fan with some glue.
Just cut all of the supports off the fan's motor hub. That way you are left with just the fan and the motor hub, and glue the hub in place of the old fan.
Just have to find a fan that is the right size to fit, and would probably have to cut away some of the plastic guards on the stock cooler.
