My wife has one of these cheesy Intel fans with a 1 inch thick cooler. The darn thing almost hurts your ears because of a singing sound it makes (sounds like about 14,000 hz). The part of the bios that is supposed to monitor the fan does not allow you to make any changes and it's a real nuisance trying to get on the Intel site.
I wondered if there is a non Intel replacement for this that isn't very expensive or a wire I could snip to make it go really fast. Thanks
