New Chipset fan

  Diodorus Siculus 18:39 23 Jan 2008

The chipset fan on my motherboard has begun to fail - or at least make a horrendous noise so I need a new one. Resourceful as ever I pooped into maplin and bought a new chipset heatsink and fan and prepared to install it.

Trouble is, it will not fit - it is too high to allow the PCIE graphics card to be installed.

Anyway, does anyone know where I can get a heatsink and fan wherein the fan is sunken into the heatsink so that the whole shebang is only about 10 mm deep rather than being a heatsink and the fan on top.

Hope this makes sense :) Any links will be most welcome.

Cheers, Dio

ICF: Can't find how to order from these people...

sidecar sid: This sits on top of the heatsink; I need something to fit into it.

Oops sorry about that.
The Jetart one in your link seems to weigh in at 11mm+
If you can stretch to 11mm this one may do.
