Default CPU Fan problems

6 months ago I bought Everex GC3502 gPC computer, and the CPU fan is starting to make some noise.
a) How likely is it that the CPU fan stops working?

b) If the fan stops working, how long do you think the computer can run before the CPU (1.5 GHz Via Technologies C7-D processor) is damaged?

NO, there is nothing in its way. It is just noisier.
I am also thinking that VIA doesn't need a fan since it is not so powerful, that's why I want to get more opinions.
thanks,

with a via cpu, it could most likely run on a heatsink alone without a fan, but i wouldnt advise it tbh

I know the really low end 700mhz VIA processors that are used in carputers use just a heatsink and have no fan, but they get rather warm, it may be best to just grab a fan and strap onto the heatsink to keep it cooled down a bit.

That's what I think I will do - just place a fan on the heat sink. ( My computer cost only $199.00 so, I do not want to invest too much money in it.

thanks,

I'd imagine it has some kind of thermal protection, so I wouldn't be too worried. Still, I'd have the fan replaced.
