I will check the fan when I get home. What pictures do you want? I will take some tonight. Just the inside, and where fans are?

Ok, here is the picture of the fan. It is blowing down (is that how its supposed to be)?

I am starting to think that I need to get a new heat sink and fan....

Can someone recommend a fan, or if you have any other ideas of how to fix it that would be great.

Here's a good one, on sale. It should fit in your case, but I can't guarantee it.

Well the dimensions of it are 115 x 62.3 x 141mm. So as long as there's 141mm between the top of your CPU socket and your case's side panel, it will fit fine.

141 millimetres = 5.5511811 inches, btw

The only other thing you will need is thermal paste. Get this stuff

It looks like the heatsink comes with an AM2 bracket (which is the same as AM2+ and AM3), so you won't need to buy one.
