Anyone know where I can get a replacement NB fan for this MB?

*OR* care to recomend an alternative solution??? I seem to recall
reading/hearing that there are fanless/passive heatsink solutions 'out
there'?

Anyone know who makes something suitable/where I might consider buying
something? Also-anyone had any HANDS-ON experience with such an
alternative?

Did they work well?

Any trouble doing the CHANGE? (Eg. removing the old heat sink)?

TIA!

If your mother isnt brand new, and the fan has only just started becoming
noisy then before you do anything rash, try giving it a blast from a can of
compressed air. If that does the trick (you fan noise drops) then consider
adding some kind of filter to your PC's case.

PS: I wonder what the record for dust build up in a PC is, the worst I've
seen is about 4cms spread evenly over the motherboard in a desktop PC, it
came in for a service because it kept crashing (I wonder why)...

My 7VAXP has been doing this for over a year. I note it does it more if the
room is cold. When it warms up it stops. I just live with it; it is still
going OK.
