Chipset fan is dying or dead. I don't think the board is even two years old but it does run 24/7. Any idea where I get a replacement? It's an AM2+ socket although the Zalman on that is fine. The chipset is 790FX/SB750. That's not doing so well.

I need to get this fast since it's my main machine.

I guess the question becomes how to do it. From what I read, getting this thing off isn't trivial. Supposedly if I just pull it the plastic pins will break and the fan will come off. Then I can either use new pins or ... glue? I'm likely to try the WD40 fix someone mentioned.
