You can't balance the fan by removing the opposing fin. The fan will still be unbalanced.
At long last...

Remove the fan and use superglue to attach the blade to the fan.
I've done it to fans before and they are still working.

where can i get 2 new ones??


Also I think I'll try to glue it first, who know maybe I'll manage to repair the fan lol. I found this thread useful http://www.overclock.net/air-cooling/43315-fanblade-glue-d.html
It seem any super glue will work and I don't have any so I'm looking to get the best I can find.

Should I put a drop of glue on the other side of the fan too to create balance since it will be a tiny bit more heavy with glued blade?

Hey I actually had the same problem. I had the 465 GE with 10 ram chips, and like you the fan blade broke off on one of the fans. I made an RMA request and they assured me they would sent back either the same card repaired or an identical one. However I just got my RMA back today and I ended up getting a 465 GE with only 8 ram chips =/

I am in the midst of talking with MSI right now about getting another replacement. =/

So if you can fix it yourself without voiding the warranty, I say do it.

You could send it to RMA and worst case they would send you a Talon attack instead of a regular Hawk...

But you will be short of a card for a while, be aware of this!

Wow that sucks. I'm in the same situation, I have a MSI 465 GE (10 chips) with a dead fan. I'm afraid to RMA it and lose value. Especially if i can fix it myself. Anyone else have experience replacing twin frozr fans, or where i can buy some replacements?

Dunno about the OP but I got shipped a card with a severe bend in the shroud that was just tipping off the fan as it span.
It was making the shroud vibrate and make a lot of noise when it ran at about 80% fan, not above or below so it was weird, obviously it was hitting the natural frequency of the shroud or something.
I touched the shroud to dampen it and see if it'd stop making the noise and it did, but when I let go it snagged the fan harder than normal and snapped a blade.
My card OCs fairly well and it was partially my fault so I don't want to send it back for an RMA.

I attached the fan from an old AMD stock heatsink and it looks like it'll work pretty well, just needed to remove the cooler, take off the shroud, attach the fan and then reattach the cooler to the card and it's ready to go smile.gif

There's also a thread with a solution here

I ended up buying this: Evercool long life 80mmx10mm

The holes don't line up with the mounting bracket, so I filed them down, and super glued the fan in place.

This is what it ended up looking like: other post w/ pic
