Will this repaired fan last

UnlockedOcean17

I don't know if anyone can tell you how strong that glue is or if it will hold without causing a lot of noise or poor performance. But my policy would be that it's broken let it go. If you really need a 12cm fan that bad, an Arctic P12 is 10 bucks, a 5 pack of it is 30 on Amazon

It works relatively quiet when plugged in. I have other, cheap fans but I might as well work with this one as long survives.

The real question will be :

 

In the event that the glue unable to hold it when it spins hard, does it sends the broken off part onto expensive PC parts & ruin it, or not.

Fair point, I'll probably just stick to my other cheap fans. While the chance of a failure, especially one that manages to damage another component, is very unlikely, it might not be worth that risk.

You could test it outside of the case, but its likely no longer balanced and creating some slightly turbulent vibrations.

$5 fan vs expensive parts that might get damaged. Seems like an obvious choice unless you're a gambler. 

 

Besides, what glue did you use?

I've been using computers since around 1978, started learning programming in 1980 on Apple IIs, started learning about hardware in 1990, ran a BBS from 1990-95, built my first Windows PC around 2000, taught myself malware removal starting in 2005 (also learned on Bleeping Computer), learned web dev starting in 2017, and I think I can fill a thimble with all that knowledge. 😉 I'm not an expert, which is why I keep investigating the answers that others give to try and improve my knowledge, so feel free to double-check the advice I give.

I had to do that on the center fan that came with my D14. It auto ejected and sounded pretty  bad, but did not damage my Rampage III Formula.

 

It will hold until it doesn't..

Epoxy resin + Bondic, liquid plastic welder

I'm not familiar with that brand. If you look up Project Farm on YouTube, he has done comparisons of various epoxies. As I recall from the video I watched, which was quite well done, JB Weld was the best for most applications. Hopefully, the epoxy you chose is really good at resisting the forces at play in a fan - my ex-bro-in-law tried to do that on a high static-pressure room fan that my kid broke by shoving a toy into...Cable ties and some kinda glue - it immediately severed! LOL! 🤣
