Windows 7: Need Replacement Fan for Gigabyte HD Radeon 5770

Need Replacement Fan for Gigabyte HD Radeon 5770

So for the past few months my fan has been "popping" off of my card. When this happens I can usually hear it, if not I realize it when my card hits 100c. Yes I know not good but it's an old card and I'm not particularly concerned about it. It's usually fixed by just shoving it back in. I tried to finally fix it a few days ago, took out the fan completely, cleaned it with acetone and oiled it up. Cuz I was tired of having my case half disassembled all the time but this just resulted in me completely breaking the fan.

I contacted Gigabyte, they were useless.

Here are some pictures of the broken fan and the card: Imgur: The most awesome images on the Internet

Now, I assume the black piece with the 3 screws, that is still attached to the card, would be considered part of the fan itself? Because initially I thought the fan just like, didn't have any screws at all. And this confused me because every GPU fan I'm seeing on the net has 3 screws. Anyway I would just like some advice before I buy something, so if anyone has any links to a fan they are confident would work, please post them, or better yet if someone has an old 5770 fan they don't mind parting, please let me know!

It's 80mm, 3-pin. Does that mean I need a 3-pin fan or would a 2-pin fan work? Also I would really love to not order something from China and have to go 2 weeks without being able to use my computer!

EDIT: yeah i had to unscrew that other piece. Herr Derr. Doing so reveals the model number of the fan.

Still though, when I google the model number,

All I get are 2-pin fans, but the card is a 3-pin. What do?

Good luck. I haven't heard of anyone replacing a fan on a gpu. Let us know how it goes.

It's actually fine to replace GPU fan if the original gives up. My friend had to retrofit the fan of his 9800 GTX to fit on the GTS 250
