post #1 of 23

Is it possible to change the fan without changing the whole cooler of the MSI Twin Frozr II (Card is 460 gtx HAWK)

Ouch. How did you do that? Were you blowing some air into it to clean the dust in it? I know because I did that once on another card, it blew so hard to took off like 2 of my blades.

Take the cooler off, and have a look to see if it is soldered or plugged in, you may be able to run a fan off a controller, and run it in place of the broken fan if its soldered etc.

can he just use that fan? or if its unstable, why not ghetto fix it by removing the more blades to create balance.

It most likely won't balance correctly and could lead to the premature failure of the fan as well as high temps...which could in turn hurt the card in the long run.

I don't know yet what to do. I'll have to investigate this week when I have time for this. I think I can easily remove the fan there are 3 screw I can reach but both fans wires are in a sleeve I'll have to cut that. Then I guess i'll have to fit a case fan or something on the cooler.

both fans are connected on the same connector. Can i plug only one fan or it will push too much power and burn the other fan? It also may be possible to get just a fan from MSI I'll try that first and let you guys know.
