I read this somewhere & since mine is having a problem, I thought I'd ask. I know it's possible, but is it effective to replace just the fan portion of a CPU's heatsink/fan?

Mobo is the MSI 785GM-E51, Model MS-7596. Bought new.
CPU is the AMD Athlon X3 435. Also bought new, in box w/stock heatsink/fan.

The CPU temp seems to be ok, but 1 of the fan blades is slightly rubbing the cover. I have a spare fan, so I thought I'd ask.
