    Hello!
    I got scammed buying a new GP63 8RF-630NE without a cpu-fan. I am now trying to buy a cpu-fan but I have no clue which one to buy. MSI refuse to assist me and Im going nuts. Does anyone have any information or can guide me? I know I have E32-2500204-A02 heatsink and 607-16P51-03S motherboard. I also have pictures of the inside if that is needed. As I dont seem to find any cpu-fans for gp73 maybe it uses same fan as other model, like the Ge73rc or Ge73rd etc.

    I would appreciate any help I could get. Thank you!

    If it's brand new you could take it back to where you got it from.

    As I bought it from a person, I am unfortunately responsible and the store won't help me. I have tried.

    From what I can see, the fans should be identical to the ge63 8rx versions... not sure about the ge73 8rx versions. You say it's missing the fan, is the heatsink complete though?
    Here you can see how the 2 compare when open:
    gp63 8rx: https://i.ytimg.com/vi/5VF0VKle0-s/maxresdefault.jpg
    ge63 8rx:

    I know for sure the heatsink of the ge73 8rx would not fit... but if you have the cover of the fan with the heatsink attached to it, the size of the fan itself might be the same... And ge72vr or ge62vr fans won't fit as the 8th gen has a different cooling layout and more vents (2 per fan instead of 1)
    Worst case you can buy the whole heatsink assembly. Sth like: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/GENUINE-...h=item286f5dd0a0:g:qZMAAOSwVRBcAHaR:rk:1:pf:0

    PS. for correct part numbers I recommend you contact MSI - they might even be able to sell you a fan if you explain your situation: https://www.msi.com/about/contact-us

    Thank you for the response. I contacted MSI and explained my situation and the only solution according to them was to send it in for repair, and the cost for shipping and labor was 10x the money for the fan. I have a link here for the inside if that helps you to narrow it down. In the imgur link is also a picture of the GPU fan. https://imgur.com/a/quKbdkO?fbclid=IwAR0SIatTMK78yz4M6PDa7eW6iNavp403Eh40ZvWkBNh_nhtuJncmibeJRTY

    I found this website https://www.barbar-dator-flaktar.se/barbar-dator-cpu-flaktar.html that sells CPU fans. But as mentioned below I have no clue what fits and they are pretty expensive.

    Well here you go - exactly the same layout as the gp63 so it should fit (unlike the older 62/72 series which are different)... https://www.barbar-dator-flaktar.se/msi-ge63vr-7rf-075-flakt-p49679.html
    But do contact MSI and ask for the part number to be sure, they CAN give you as much as that. If not, patiently ask to speak with a manager.

    Hmm, I will contact that online shop and double check with them tomorrow if its the same model. Thank you. Here is the response I got when asking for the part number details on the CPU-fan.
    I cant belive they will not give out any information.

    You said you were sure the ge73 heatsink did not fit on the gp73. Aren't the ge and gp73 the same?

    Looking at this, I see no difference.
