    hi,
    im want to replace a 40mm fan on my DFI infinity ultraii-m2 motherbaord.
    this is a little fan that placed on a what seems to be some kind of cooling - radiator component- it is not the fan that placed on the cpu.
    i bought a standart 40mm fan but the screws doesnt match the ones on the DFI fan (they are very smalls and shorts).

    i looked on ebay but couldnt find none .
    i also contact the dfi customer service (by email) - but got no answer.

    anyone know where i could find one ?

    i added some pictures - also the motherboard and some of the fan.

    Your last pic shows a three pin connector.

    I suppose any 40mm fan with a three pin connector would fit.

    thanks for the replys.

    i not sure if the linked ebay fans are similar for the one i need .
    from the first tnx linked the screws part seems like the one i bought and couldnt screw it to the radiator part it sits on.
    look at the screw picture i added at the first post - they are very very small. the linked fan has a bigger screws which i cant use on the radiator holes.

    as for the second fan linked - i cant enlarge the picture to determine if it fits.


    redroad - are you suggest that ill upgrade the fan - as seen in the youtube ? not realy understood why to look for Northbridge cooling fan
