Fan experts: source for replacement Quicksilver CPU fan?
I've got a couple of dual processor Quicksilvers with failed or failing CPU fans. I'm doing lots of searching, but there isn't much around that I can find, and what I have found is usually used. If I'm going to replace it and spend at least $15 on a machine that's worth < $100, I'd rather have a new fan so I don't have to do it again before the whole thing dies.
Wondered if anyone had suggestions on locating new replacement fans for these guys. The original Sunon fan p/n and specs are:
60mm x 60mm x 25mm
2-pin connector on cable approx. 3.75" long from housing (including connector)
DigiKey shows fans similar to this in the "obsolete" category. And this link seemed promising, but turns out to be from overseas and used condition:
Might there be suitable, newer alternatives w/ different part #s that would be interchangeable?
Is this a good question?
