GPU Cooler Blade Broken

Hi,

I'm new on this forum and I'm here because I have a problem of course.
My computer's case is always open for better cooling, so this morning i dropped something inside my computer (xD) and when i pulled it out my finger hit the GPU cooler and a blade broke.

I didn't realise it because i thought it won't break and my computer continued to run 24 hours. The next day I opened a game and it was all super laggy(fps) and suddenly my computer freezed.


Here comes the questions:

    1. Theres a possibility, though given that your FPS tanked its likely it throttled itself before it could burn out.

    2. See what happens when you run the fan without a blade. An unbalanced fan will sound horrible.

    3. This might be one of the few times I recommend an aftermarket VGA cooler.
    One of these is bound to be compatible with your card.

    Of course, you could remove the fan assembly (leaving the heatsink on) and just jury rig your own fan to it.

    The GPU works great as far (tested screen recording on mafia 2 at max).
    The fan sounds ok until 75%, after that it starts to get a little noisy and the real problem is that the whole GPU starts to shake (90%).

    Is it bad?
