Does anyone have experience replacing a fan in a 1080Ti SC2 Gaming card? My 2nd fan is not moving despite trying to manually make it spin in Precision. I'm pretty sure it's a dead fan... but not a 100%.. the unit seems really difficult to get to so some instruction would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks, Yeah but how hard is it to replace them? I can't find a guide or video anywhere.

    This guide on installing the Hybrid Cooler for example, gives you quite good disassembly instructions.

    If you're not comfortable with hand tools get someone who is.

    I figured it out.. it's pretty easy, there's 3 T6 screws and a Philips and the cover comes off.. 3 screws for the fans and I ordered one of those on Amazon. So hopefully that's it. Just a dead fan. I had this card torn apart to reapply TIM over a year ago and I just remember having a hell of time getting back together, so much so that my brain told that something as simple as fan replacement wasn't going to be easy so I better look for a guide.
