Hello all, I would be eternally grateful if someone could sell me the 100mm ROG Fan that comes with the ARES. I suppose this would apply to people who's heatsink is broken or a different cooling solution was found. But most of all I would appreciate if someone could direct me towards a fan of similar specs with the 4-pin power connector. Newegg has multiple fans, but they are all thin case fans.

Thank you for your time!

Ah, well the fans actually broke off of the base while the card was being inserted into the PCI-E slot in the casing. A very beginner mistake with terrible implications. I had contacted Asus and they quoted the repair cost to be $800 as the whole heat-sink had to be replaced if I RMA'd it, not just the fan.

Wow.... nothing like crashing the car driving off the dealership lot. I feel the pain here.
