Measure the fan's dimensions with a metric ruler. Typically they come in increments of 10mm (50, 60, etc) with 80, 90, and 120 being the most common. Fans on the CPU cooler (as yours is) may be smaller.

Since it's an Arctic Cooling fan, you may be able to find the model number and check the Arctic Cooling website for the size there.

Now I'm confused.The big fan is Arctic Cooling,I can see that,but the little one,just a bit under it is the one I need to replace,the one that has Abit written on it.I don't know what is it called,is it the processor cooler,or what?

I think s/he is talking about the motherboard fan. Usually you can order them from the manufacturer. Contact Abit.

Most likely the ABit fan is cooling your chipset. A lot depends on how the chipset fan is connected to the chipset cooler. If it's just one unit, then you'll also have to replace the thermal transfer stuff between the cooler and the chipset.

On a side note...you need to clean out the accumulated dust, this effecta its ability to cool.

Thank you!About the dust,what is the best way to clean it?And do I need to take everything off to clean it because I've tried to clean the components but it's difficult to reach every little corner inside of the computer.
Oh,I forgot to say that ever since that blade broke off the computer makes a different noise then before,is it because of the fan or is it something else?

I would think the noise is from the fan, as for the dust, get a can of compressed air. You can get it at just about any place that sells electronics. (Walmart, Best Buy, Office Depot, Etc.) Unplug your computer, blow out the dust, use a pencil or something to keep the fan from turning when you blow it out. :thumbsup:

The fan won't be as efficient as it should be. Later, maybe much later, it could fail

The noise you hear is the Fan being unbalanced. Your Temps seem fairly decent so I wouldnt fret about the fan too much.

On the other hand,

an unbalanced fan will cause uneven wear on the shaft and bearings.

It will continue to get worse, and louder, and slower.

You'll be getting less and less air flow - translates to cooling - so I would suggest replacing it before this happens.

Just my OTOH.
