I'm looking to replace my broken msi fan model (n402) but i've found a much cheaper fan that is a different model (n366). Can I just buy the cheaper model? And would it work on my laptop? (Gv 62 8rd)

You might want to parse a link to both fans that you've narrowed down. There might be subtle differences that might prevent the fan from working with your laptop, namely clearance issues. I'm also looking at this fan though I see N402 and N366 in the listing.
