    New nbfan?

    I need a new nbfan for my Abit IC7-G mobo (current one has ceased to spin-it is a dead fan) but do not know where to get one.I would be grateful for any reasonable suggestions and alternatives if there are any.Space may be a concern as the the fan is over-shadowed by a Zalman flower h/sink & fan for the cpu.

    I'd be inclined to swap it for a passive heatsink, size permitting.

    This seems to happen a fair bit on abit motherboards, the same thing happened to my NF7-S about a week after I installed it. I replaced mine with the copper vantec iceberg fan.

    The IC7-G's NB fan doesn't have pushpins to secure it (or at least the one I had to switch didn't), so if you go the Zalman passive route - I did and the machine has been running 24/7 for over a year without a squeak - then get the NB32J. It's supplied with thermal epoxy as well as grease and the NB47J isn't. Also, the 32's less tall, and that may jibe better with your requirements re: mounting. In fact, the IC7-G that I bunged together at work has a Zalman copper flower on it IIRC, and that sits fine.
