Default VGA fan, where to get a new one?

hey everyone, im having problems with my graphics card fan, its VERY noisy, even at low speeds. seems to be getting worse, think the fan has had it. taken it out and made sure it wasnt clipping on wires or anything, and its still the same.

where would i go to get a new one? all i need is the fan and not the sink.

the card is a tyan radeon 9600 pro



thanks for any help,

Unscrew the fan, there should be a hole in the middle, probably with a label on it.
Get a can of oil, I use something called 3-in-1 (Dunno who makes it.) Put a few drops in, clean up.. whack that sucker back in.

You should find out what the 3-in-1 is before he goes and buys a 3-in-1 that could destroy his card.

Make sure you can't repair/quiet your current fan before buying a new one, but if nothing else, newegg.com and xoxide.com are my favorite hardware places.

Xoxide tends to have "cooler" products, but newegg has a more wide variety, better shipping, and tends to be lower price.
