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

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.

Motherboard chipset getting hot and machine rebooting how can i solve this problem

The Northbridge chip of the motherboard chipset does get hot. So does the Processor, and the graphics chipset.

Air is used to cool the hardware components inside that 'pizza-box' desktop computer.
The case is a lousy design.
Airflow is minimal.

I would install a small fan on the Northbridge chip, and a fan on the Processor. (IF the computer is just using a computer case fan, to cool the Processor)

I would strip the guts out of that computer case, and install them into a mid-tower computer case.

{Note* If the Power Supply is not an ATX unit (Approximately 6 inches Wide, 5-1/2 inches Long, and 3-1/2 inches Tall), you will need to buy one.
Example of an economical decent ATX power supply,

1) Check to make sure the computer case fan, or Processor fan is operating, (Computer running, computer case open, keep your hands out)
Check to make sure the fan isn't running intermittently. Runs, slows down or stops, then runs again.

2) Check to make sure the Thermal Paste in-between the Processor, and Heatsink, is in good shape.
With the low cost of fresh, new thermal paste, it is just cheap insurance to replace it anyway.

(Don't forget to THOROUGHLY clean the top of the Processor, and bottom of the Heatsink.
PROPERLY apply new, fresh thermal paste.
Observe Anti-Static Precautions )

3) Ensure that the inside of the computer is clean. Use a can, or two of compressed air for computers, and clean it out.
(Computer unplugged from power. Anti-Static Precautions observed)

Barring none of this cures the problem, the Northbridge chip is failing. This requires motherboard replacement.

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.

Maybe not the answer for everyone, but I proved it was the fan by removing the back panel, removing the fan and finger guard, then placing a small desktop fan that was the same size as the top-rear fan on the wine fridge. Pumping air directly over the heat sink allowed the unit to attain the temperature set on the front panel. The old fan would either not turn at all, or too slowly to be affective. These fans are junk. Especially after finding articles such as this out in different forums for the same issue. I have the HVTS18DABB model unit and the replacement fan is a simple 120mm square, 25mm deep 12V DC fan. Similar or the same as you see in computer chassis. Found some inexpensive, high CFM, low noise fans from the following site:
Specific fan for my application was the model SY1225SL12SH. Although I did order a second fan that is similar in case the .5amps was too high and I popped a fuse. These fans are inexpensive folks, as long as you aren't afraid to get your hands dirty. Good luck.
Here are the details on my order:

Yate Loon 120x25mm D12SH-12 1 5.99
D12SH-12 High Speed -

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;

Thank you for trying FixYa

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!

HP ZV6000 Fan Making Noise

I had a similar problem on my zv6000, but I've tracked it down to the fan in the middle (not the one above the CPU with the heatsink).

For anyone else that doesn't feel like taking your laptop apart twice (once to get the part number and twice to put the new fan in after you get it online, etc.), the fan is a Sunon Maglev GC 056015VH-A. HP doesn't carry them in the parts store anymore, but I ordered mine online from an independent retailer.

They sell some things that you can put on the fan so it can run quietly without making any noise.
