2080 fan blade broke. What should I do?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

One of the fan blades broke off my Aorus 2080 xtreme edition, it sounds even louder than usual, and temps seem to be a bit worse too. 


Is there an easy fix or am I screwed until I upgrade?

Can you post a pic of it? If you just need to replace a fan, you can probably find a replacement online. All I could find was for the 2060 model so measure the fan and see if they are the same size. You might be able to use those.

If you cant find any, you can buy a different cooler or try to contact Gigabyte to see if they can send you one.

I am far from an expert in this so please correct me if I’m wrong.

Quote or tag me so I can see your response

Snap off the opposite blade to balance the fan back and get rid of the vibration. Obviously you'll have a bit less cooling than with an intact fan.


You can look around for spare fans on ebay/aliexpress if you want to replace it. If it's a 3 fan card it's probably not worth bothering. 


I just went through this recently with my ITX 1070, since it's single fan card I've ordered a replacement. In the meantime I've still be using it after snapping the opposite blade, it heats up about 5°C more.
