Dell Dimension 2400 Fan

So I am upgrading an old dell dimension 2400 and I want to get a new cooling fan in there. I have been looking around on google but I have not been able to determine if there is a specific fan that I would need to get. The stock fan that is in there also has a green cover over it so I want to make sure that if I do replace it everything will still be compatible.

Matt, I would imagine that a good number of fans would fit that space.

It just needs to be 92mm and have a 3-pin motherboard power connector.

Most of those fan casings are just for airflow, but 99% of them can deal without, and twice as many when the fan is upgraded.

Gimme a second while I fetch some examples of fans that would fit that purpose.

Awesome, Thank you very much.

I just had one last question, Will the outer casing where the fan actually sits in be compatible with the mounts on the case for my computer?

Or is it more a matter of taking out the old fan from the outer casing and putting the new one in?

I don't understand exactly what outer casing you are referring to, :p  but this whole part

Comes out and a new part goes in the same place with the same screws/mounts as the old one

Thank you very much again you have been a great help!
