Default big problem!

ok i opened up my pc because it was making a weird noise. to make a long story short, somehow one of the blades on my cpu cooling fan has broken off. this fan doesnt spin incredably fast but it makes a slight vibration through the entire case and threw off the rotation. should i try to glue the blade back on or will it b fine?

i suggest you buy a new one. it is not really that expensive.

Probably do more harm than good... just refrain from overclocking. If you already are, perhaps you should back down.

You should be fine.

havent overclocked. the problem is that its a dell and they make their own parts. so the fan isnt just removeable. it a whole big piece. im gonna shut it down and take a look.

if the fan is not removable then i think you should leave it be. if you glue it the fan blade might fall off again and jam everything.

You will most likely have to replace the whole heatsink

Or whine at dell for a new one
