I own an Asus Strix Fury. Fan number 3 broke and they refused to fix it because I bought a "whitebox." Usually, this isn't some big issue as a ton of us here mod crap anyway. I took it apart got to the fan and then tried to buy a replacement for months. Even buying the exact same serial number produced a different fan. I eventually gave up on getting an exact replacement. Asus is using a custom unusual mounting pattern to prevent you from replacing the fan. Then they aren't even using a unique serial number. You literally can not buy this fan. I have had to splice a different fan into place and use zip-ties to get it to stay in place correctly. It is of course working, but this really puts a damper on my opinion of their products. I have bought Asus since before Hardocp even existed. So this is somewhat of a damper for me. Which manufacturers are offering the ability to buy fans or atleast are using fans that can be bought third party? Edit: I did inquire with Asus to buy a replacement part. They refused. I went digging through my old receipts and found that I once owned a MSI video card in a very old Geforce 4 and they did sell me directly a replacement fan. My has that been many years. Why Asus is using these custom fans and then not selling replacement parts is beyond me.
