Xbox 360 slim fan replacement

Hey guys,

So I'm looking for a replacement fan for the power brick on my 360 slim. The model is AB5512HX-g00 and googling only turned up a place that sells it for 20 freaking dollars. Anyone know where I can get one that's a bit cheaper?

My brick also just broke down recently for my Slim too. I'd just get a new brick instead for 20 on Amazon, not a bad price.

Thanks for the reply. I'm 95% sure it's just my fan that went bad so I'm looking towards alternatives to fixing the brick. I already invested a little time and money to learning how to take everything apart, so I figure I might as well figure out how to fix it if it happens again. It costs around $30 bucks for another power brick that might die at the same time or faster than my current one. If I can't find a replacement fan, I might just get a dremel and put a computer fan on the damn thing.

It's never a good idea to mess with power supplies. I know that's a fact with PC's and I'm sure its the same with any electronic. Only trained professionals should be messing with power supplies. It's usually alot easier just to get a new power supply.

This. Even after being unplugged, I don't think the capacitors in a 360 power supply are to the level where they could store lethal amounts of charge; but why tempt fate?

Find another one, don't smoke around it, keep it away from dust, don't nestle it in your entertainment center without ventilation and occasionally take a can of compressed air to it.
