Hi all,

I have had my G53SW for about a year now and I've just missed my warranty period by a matter of weeks. This is just as my graphics card fan started making a horrible noise. I've taken it apart and shot pressurized air all over the fans/motherboard/rest of the heatsink stuff etc. but it is still very loud so I'm assuming the bearings in the fan have gone.

Therefore I want to buy a new fan but don't know what sort of fan it is etc. so I was wondering if anyopne has replaced their fan(s) and if so what fan did they get? If I can't get the exact same fan, does anyone know any of the same dimensions?

Thanks for your time,

Poncho

Ah thanks very much I found one and it's on its way.

I also got an email back from asus support on the same subject and they pointed me to http://www.asusparts.eu if you're in the EU like me.

Thanks,

Poncho
