Chip Set Fan Replacement

Getting too much noise from the DFI chipset fan here, and I'd like to order a new one, although not having much luck in finding where to order one from, thought I'd ask you guys for advice. The labeling on the back of the fan is: Sunon / MagLev Fan / 124010VH / dc 12v .... and the fan measures (apprx.)37mm

Re: Chip Set Fan Replacement

Try doing this. If you can, Un plug your computer, then remove the fan from the Heatsink. Using water and Dishwashing Liquid soad mix in a container. Soak the fan in the solution for 1 hour. Then rinse it using running water. Then sun dry it for 3 hours. Then re-affix it to your Heatsink! Hope this helps.

Where can i get a replacement on board fan from?

fans are pretty standard things with only 2-3 different sizes so you wont have great difficulty getting one from your local friendly neighbourhood pc repair shop...or electronic retailer unless you live in the Australian Outback or Outer Mongolia or somewhere equally remote. Try a Tandy/ Radioshack/Maplins/PC World-you don't say what country you're in so can't 2nd guess what retailers are near you.
Don't forget, these things aren't motherboard specific; if it's your cpu chip fan then that's more specific to the cpu processor; try searching for that, and if it's just a motherboard cooling fan, then measure the length of one side in mm, and search for that size fan. The fan voltage is always 12volts.

The nb fan is very noisy - (I think it is this fan that is causing problems as the guru monitoring software shows a red bar against this fan, although the nb temp is indicated as ok.) I have also had the...

If you have the users manual or can find it online, first try to diagnose the beeps that the MB makes. Generally there is a troubleshooting section that will give you a list or error beep codes.

If it is just the fan making noise and you feel that you can remove the thing, I have had luck peeling back the sticker on the center of the fan and adding a couple drops of thin oil (mineral oil tends to do the trick) to the bearing in the fan. Spin the fan a few times to get the stuff worked in and then try it out.

Chip set fan seized. Where can I purchase one

One style,

It's not quite 1 -3/4 inches across in width. (45mm)
Has four legs with tabs on the end for mounting. See if the mounting holes (After the fan is removed) are the same, or comparable close. You can always use a little dab of hot glue for each leg. JMHO

Another style,

It stands up on the Northbridge chipset. Has a flat base underneath. Use thermal glue to attach.

Original fan?
Good luck.

Northbridge chipset overheating

A small heatsink fan might very well be enough to dispel the heat on the northbridge. If you can find a small heatsink/fan would be a better solution, but doubtful that you'll be able to mount it on the chip if it's not setup for one to begin with. Try the heatsink, and go grab a $5-$10 case fan to help with some airflow. If the Athlon itself is heating up, getting a better cooling fan/heatsink combo. Alternately there are some liquid coolers out there that would definitely keep you cool, but they can be a little cumbersome.

I have a burnt out fan chip and was told that I need to replace my mother board - it is an asus a8n-e where can I buy one

There is a problem with the Southbridge chipset. The nForce4 chipset over heats.
Asus has not made a better cooler for the nForce4 Southbridge chipset.
(It does not cool the chipset as it should).
You will have the same trouble with a new A8N-E MB.
Sooner or later if you do not change the chipset cooler with a stronger fan/heatsink assembly like any of the ones listed on the next link, the chipset will burn up.
Here is the link to Asus for a replacement chipset fan;

Try this link for the board;

Here is the Google search link for the Asus A8N-E board;

Than click the link below for other compatible Socket 939 motherboards with PCI-E x16;

Want to replace noisy fan for ASUS Intel 845 Chipset P4B Motherbo

This should give you time to find a new fan
Remove paper center from fan and put a small drop (I mean small) of light machine oil on the bearing then replace paper center.
This should get you out of trouble for a few months at least.
I have done this with at least 8 fans in the past some never needed a new fan

Fan not working on a8n-sli delux

Hi wilson756168,
Here is the link to buy a new replacement chipset fan:
You'll need to become a member & sign into Asus to order a new chipset fan or you can call Asus directly. I know there are four black pins with tiny springs on the back side of the board under the fan. Its been so long since I changed one of these. It may be best to wait until the new one comes in before removing the bad one. Another option would be to call Asus tech at 1-812-282-2787 IL M-F 8-5:00PM EST and ask for "How to remove fan" from a tech.
Or you can buy a better chipset fan that will last longer & cool far greater than Asus fan.
(Best option).

Good luck wilson!

Cpu fan noisy /chip fan fail

You must buy a new CPU Fan. You can get them HERE or a zillion other places on the Internet. You need a Socket 939 type fan that will handle your cpu speed. If you need help installing it, it may be in the manual. You can read the manual by clicking on the picture of your MB at the top of this post and then scrolling down.

Hope that fixed ya...
