    Noisy A7V133 M/B Fan needs replacing!

    Thanks ASUS for sending me a motherboard mounted fan that is ready to burn out after two months of use! Anybody know where to find an OEM fit to replace the Nothbridge fan on the A7V133? Send advice to servertech@home.com

    Can tell you where to buy the right fan online. Even though the fans arrived with 3pin pwr splitters and wires already stripped, my brief experience with the company hardly classifies me as a expert on whether to designate them as an OEM.

    The fans (case fans) I'm thinking of are Panaflos. The online merchandiser is Digi-Key. Doesn't seem to be a Panaflo fan they don't carry.

    If, by mobo fan you mean CPU fan, that costs extra. You gotta post a reply and ask for that. Only cuz I don't think that's (HSF) what you meant.

    Get a Blue Orb, then, using the supplied, 3pin to 4pin adapter, modify it to supply 7v (by switching wires around on the adapter), then you have a nice and quiet blue orb.

    Do you people even bother to read what we write? The ASUS A7V133 motherboard comes with a chipset fan for the VIA northbridge controller. It is similar to the Abit KT7 motherboard. This is not a CPU fan, or a case fan, this is a chipset fan!
