Damaged 775 Cooler

  1. Hi,
    I have a quiet startech fan+heatsink combo for my pc building project. To cut a long story short, the heatsink fell onto my floor. A small piece from the silver plastic on top snapped off, however I cannot see any damage done to the fan. Should I try using this? Or booting up the computer with the side off? Here is the link to it:
    I am one annoyed guy right now.
    P.S I will try to upload a picture if my camera decides to work.

    If by "top" you mean part of the fan shroud, as long as the structural integrity of the whole shroud isn't compromised, it should be okay.

    Okay, Thanks. The bit broken off is one of the small triangle-like shapes right at the edge, as seen in the link.
