MSI GTX 460 cyclone/OC fanblades broke.please help

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi. 2 fanblades next to each other of my vid card broke after 2 weeks of usage. Store won't replace the card. Is there any fan similar to mine thats also compatible and fits so I could just replace it?90mm.Or do I get a heatsink?, and which one would work. Did some research but no go. I would like to spend as least as possible.
Thank you so much.

Well its kinda hard to say.
Most likely you can get a any similar fan to work as long as it can be connected the same.

You will have to take off the broken fan off the heatsink (and most likely have to remove the heatsink to do that). After that, you will need to see how its being connected (special connection, just a normal screw), and find something similar.

Kinda hard to tell you, as it seems that no one has done something you are trying to do on the same card.
