BFG Power supplyfan has stoped working

Hi i need some help... ive been searching but i can't find anything. Is BFG still doing RMA for there parts?

From what i found it looks like just the graphics cards (maybe the powersupplys too?) does anyone have an Email i can reach them with?

Because there Website right now is down (under construction) so please Any help is appreciated!

If i can't RMA it i will Replace the fan myself (i just want to find out if i can RMA it)

Thanks in advance!

Just disconnect the power supply, open it and replace the fan.
Been doing that since was a kid, very easy fix

If it's under warranty and all that, then that's up to you if you want to replace.
But BFG is no longer around ~ out of business.

Google them or wait for more replies as I'm not sure who is handling their RMAs.

If you replace the fan on your own, use a good quailty ball bearing or double ball bearing fan so that it lasts the life of the power supply. Power supplies usually have the fan(s) wired directly to the PCB, so you will have to splice the wires and do it that way. Still, not had to do.

BFG can't even RMA their graphics cards anymore because they don't have stock to work with. I don't know about their power supplies but i'd just replace the fan myself anyways. Less hassle.

Yea even if you don't have any extra fans around that are good and have to get one from a local store, it's better then dealing with the RMA BS if you can avoid it.

My guess is that your RMA luck has run out with BFG. The company is going under and has since stopped accepting RMA's for video cards and I don't see why that would be different for PSU's.

Knock on wood that it's just your PSU fan and not the PSU itself.
Don't run it without a good working fan though, especially for games and such, it will overheat.
