I'm in Oz. So... if you're not in Oz might be pretty hard to collect.

Essentially fans have a bunch of tiny wire wrappings inside and if too much juice is pumped through them or they encounter too much resistance they heat up and eventually fuse with eachother from the heat and your fan loses efficiency (because it has less wrappings). It'll just reach a point where the whole thing is a wrapping and it wont turn at all or it'll suck a lot of juice when it does (which the card can't support).
The bearings could've also went too. So if they're free floating, but don't move they're burned out. If they move really hard, the bearings are shot... Either way you need a new cooler.
