Fan for nForce4 Ultra?

My chipset fan on my nForce 4 Ultra is starting to make a grinding sound. I've checked my mobo manual but can't find what sort of fan I need to replace it (the mobo is a LANPARTY UT nF4 Ultra D). What exactly am I looking for?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

    I had the Intel edition of this chipset and to say the least it was one of the hottest chipsets that nvidia ever made.

    This is one of the most problem free chipset coolers that can still do a very good job with out having to resort to modding a socket A all copper cooler with a 5k rpm 40mm fan. :s
  2. Thanks! One additional question - how does one remove the current cooler? I've tried simultaneously pushing the two small, spring-loaded, hexagonal pins but the cooler won't budge.

    You are going to need to take out the board and turning it over then pinch the ends of the push pins while pushing them out. Then the cooler should fairly easily come off, don't worry if the stock compounds has to strength to it. It will pop off at that point. Be sure to clean the chipset before installing the new cooler.
