Why not just unplug the fan, you don't really need it. I disable it on my MB also. Adds to the noise.

that seems kinda dangerous... i feel maybe its gonna burn something.... i think if i remove the fan.. i should at least replace it with something... a semi-decent heatsink will do..

how long ago you disable the fan on your mb?

On the North bridge, like a year ago when I got it. Doesn't it already have a heatsink under that fan no? I'm pretty sure you'll be able to replace that heatsink with your own pretty easy.
