Default Video card fan

I have an Nvidia Geforce MSI 6600GT pci-e card. The fan stopped working then it overheated the card so I RMA'ed it. Now 5 days later after I got the replacement the fan stopped working again. I wonder why the fan stops working? And if I need to get a new fan what's a good one?


AMD ATHLON64 3200+
ASUS A8V-E Deluxe VIA K8T890(939 socket)
1 gig memory
THERMALTAKE 480WATT POWER SUPPLY

Ok I'm not sure what one to get.

I'm thinking of either the Zalman VF700-CU cooler or the NV Arctic silencer. Are these both compatible with a Geforce 6600gt pci-e?
