January of this year I built a new computer, for a CPU cooler I bought

https://www.amazon.com/ARCTIC-ACFRE00052A-Freezer-Pressure-Optimised-Technology/dp/B07LGSDQC2

 

I have had a fan 'get loud' due to a bad bearing before... sometime last night the cooling fan just stopped... I woke up to a message on the screen that the fan wasn't working, so the computer 'dropped out' to just display a low power using BIOS message

 

I had a box of 120mm fans that I bought when building several computers, so I replaced the dead fan and all is well again

 

I am surprised that an 11 month old fan would die, but 'stuff happens'

 

Has anyone else had a fan just stop working?

I never liked The Dead very much. Boring music.
Oh! You're talking hardware? I thought you were talking about Jerry.

Nope, they don't make stuff like they used to. Sorry, man.
