One of my fans barely spins and when it does it makes a horrible grinding noise. I am basically running with only one fan, which pushes my CPU temps up and when I put any serious load on the machine, raises the temps close to Tj.Max and throttles down the processor. Has anyone successfully replaced one of these fans before?

Edit: It's a G74S...
