Northbridge fan is defective any suggestions on a replacement?

Recommended Posts

the northbridge fan on my mobo is making a loud noise due to the ball bearings messing up,i am looking for a replacement that is the same size or smaller dimension due to the fact that my gpu is within 1-2 mm of the nb fan and i dont want to buy something that wont allow my card to fit; so if anyone has any ideas or solutions to what i could it would very much appreciated.

 

thanks

Yes. Some of them work fine. I happened to have an older copper vantec that worked great and cooled the chipset even better than the stock fan.

 

www.coolerguys.com - www.frozencpu.com - www.svc.com - www.newegg.com - www.oxide.com - www.directron.com

 

Just a few sites you can find all kinds of heatsinks. Even a nice copper h/s with a good side fan blowing in the side would cool better than the stock. Good hunting.

both models have the lights in them im pretty sure. vc-re is called "twinkling vga cooler" even though it doesnt twinkle, the LEDs stay constant from what ive read before.
