Its not a standard diameter for a pentium4, ime not sure of the diameter as dell does not list it and the actual fan is on the case , ported to the pentium4 cpu covered with a heat sinc. Your best bet is to physically measure it or take it with you when you buy a new fan. If you have the outside dimentions ,the correct screw hole pattern and it fits under the plastic shroud, you have the correct fan..

There is a fan made to go with the processor you are installing. That's the one one you use. buy them together. At the same time, you can ask for a chassis fan and the store will know what you need.

    the"various sources" will know what you need based on processor type and the "chassis" Chassis fans have the holes in the correct spots for the screws.they are not just any 3 inch fan.

Fan Noise on Dell Dimension 8100


All computer fans have a general design.  The name in front of "fan" really refers to the designation.  You'll see case fan, processor fan, CPU fan, cooling fan, etc.  In the case of CPU/Processor fan, some are sold with heatsinks (the metal block sitting on top of your CPU).

The first thing you want to do is make sure the fan is clean.  Chances are dust buildup is causing the excess noise.

If that's not the case and you're looking to replace the fan, then you first need to find out the size of the fan. General sizes(diameter X width in mm) are listed on this page:

http://www.svc.com/case-fans.html

Generally, you're looking for something that will match the size of what you're replacing & push enough air at a reasonable noise level to cool the heatsink/CPU.  You want to stay in the area of 30dBA max for noise.  You also want to see if it has a 3-pin or 4-pin connection.

For example, if you have an 80mm fan, I would suggest something like this:

http://www.svc.com/saf-b82-19.html

It's pretty quiet with good airflow.  Also, it has a 3-pin connection, but includes an adapter for a 4-pin connection.
