Need help from tech gods

Yeah a while back i noticed a strange sound coming from my pc, like a fan hitting something, sometimes it sounded like that and sometimes there was no sound, so today i tur ed on my pc and the sound got worse, so i opened it up and discovered it was one of the gpu fans :(, so i unplugged the pc took the gpu out and when i went to check the fan it came out with no effort at all, so the question is, can it be fixed and if cant, cant the gpu work fi e with the remaining 2 gpu fans?

Gpu is Geforce GTX 970 Gigabyte

    Contact Gigabyte. You don't want to risk voiding your warranty.
  2. in the off chance the warranty has expired you can replace the entire cooler with an aftermarket unit like this.
    example only, not an endorsement, shop around.

  3. Likely your warranty is expired but if its not I would certainly contact Gigabyte. You can find GPU replacement fans and they are extremely cheap. Making sure you get the correct size is the hard part but that is where Gigabyte could possibly help as well as you could ask them to send you one.
