: Trouble finding a cpu fan!!! Computer folks, help!

07-11-07, 01:09 PM
So, my processor fan is on the fritz. Bearings are out.

This is the part number, which I can find a bunch of places that sell it for seven to ten bucks. But they're all in Australia.

fd06010b1h Speeze 60x60x10. 22 cfm, 4800 rpm.

I don't know what to look for or where to find one here in the states. Any help, eh? Or a compatible one that will mount up to the same cooler I have?

Here you go!

What you need is basically a CPU Heatsink FAN. You already know the size, 60x60mm, so that makes it easier. Now just look through that list and find the one that matches your processor type, since you didn't mention it I couldn't refine the search.

Buying CPU HS fans are easy and newegg has great prices. Good luck!


I noticed the first link lists fans with heat sinks too. Sometimes its cheaper, to replace the whole unit (Heat sink and fan). Either way here is a link with just fans listed at the 60x60mm size.

Radio Shack would probably have them.

Well lets first verify that it is in fact a flipchip CPU and not a Slot1. What is the processor?

I was going to suggest PC Power and Cooling but it appears that they no longer make CPU coolers.

I don't know what that means.

I went to a place called Computers Plus in Chico yesterday. Told the kid at the desk I needed a 60x60x10 fan. He walked me over to the display, pointed at one that looked identical to the one I have, albeit with different stickers, and told me that should work. I bought it.

I'm going to go put it in here in a few minutes...Hopefully its right.

Are they still requiring heat sink compound between the CPU and fan these days?

07-13-07, 05:04 PM
ya sliver 5 compound is what i use..... what cpu? are you running i may have some fans laying around ....

07-13-07, 05:51 PM
Do I need something between the fan and the aluminum fins, or just between the fins and the processor? The heat sink I didn't remove, just the fan.

07-13-07, 05:59 PM
Only between the heatsink (aluminums fins) and the processor. Just mount the fan up and plug it in and your good to go.


P.S. yes processor's still require compound. Many different brands these days. I use some silver one in a tube.

Definitely, more so than ever.

You can cook a CPU in an instant without the compound.

You can cook a CPU in an instant without the compound.

Although possible, it's unlikely. Most boards now have thermal protection for one. Second as long as a HS/Fan is making contact with the surface of the CPU what will most likely happen is the CPU will get too hot and lock up causing the operating system to crash and/or the PC to reboot. Now with no HS/fan touching the CPU core, it will most likely fry before it gets to POST. :)

Don't mess around, get one of these:

Asus Silent Square


It even keeps my Intel Kentsfield cool.

Is that thing freaking water cooled?!

07-14-07, 07:32 PM
No it's heat pipe technology

07-14-07, 07:52 PM
This is heat pipe technology. There are 124,300 of these on the Trans Alaska Pipeline. http://www.cadillacforums.com/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=33085&stc=1&d=1184457093

I read that at work yesterday and I busted out laughing.

Haha nice one!

I usually buy fans and heat sinks from www.nexfan.com
They have super cheap prices if you have time to wait for shipping.
I just had to buy a 370 fan because one of my old computers started shaking the whole case apart... it was pretty funny really.
I figured it probably wasn't good to put that much vibration right into the CPU.
They have all things cooling there, from old school socket 7 stuff up to those crazy heat pipe and whatever else you can think of.

Great, now I found some stuff I want to buy there....
