Default MSI Twin Frozer GTX 560 fans

I've got a couple of GTX 560's at work that are probably 2 to 2.5 years old now and the fans on the heatsinks are completely seized. I've been looking around to find a replacement for either the fan or the heatsink but no luck. Does anybody here would know of a place that sells those ?

double check, but I think the warranty is at least 3 years on the twin frozrs. MSI's canadian RMA is fairly quick and painless.

Easier said than done when I don't own them :P I'll have to double check with the people that built the computer. It was built in the U.S and shipped to Canada. I'll contact MSI on Monday and see if I might be able to get replacement fans for them. Out of 15 GTX 560 we have 4 with seized fans. A bad batch maybe..
