    Dang man, that is a bummer!!!

    What you could do for a temp fix is may ghetto mod a fan to the cooler. Maybe zip tie it some how? Or lay it up where the original fan mounts and use some rubber bands to hold in place.

    At least until you get a replacement from Sparkle or a member.

    Have you tried to contact any other vendors that made the reference 460? They might have a fan available.

    I think I have the exact fan that you need it was for a nvidia geforce2ti500 64MB, the other one is for a ati radeon 9800 256MB which one you think is the one?

    Don't get the cheap stuff, and make sure that it is spread evenly (even a bit on the outside for cohesiveness, but not enough to create friction with the air or weight on the blade), and it will work like a charm. If you can pull this off right, it will be like nothing was wrong at all.

    Source? I have done this.
