The fan on the motherboard finally died after squeeling for awhile. I\npulled the fan off. The case temp is 33 and the cpu temp is 38 (at\nidle) running 3 case fans plus the 2 in the power supply. Is it safe\nto run with the motherboard fan removed? If I need to replace it, are\nthere any passive heat sink type options? If so, where?\n\nThanks in advance.\n\n-\-\nRegards,\n\nSnarfu\n________________________________________________________________\n\nRemove JUNK from my address when replying by e-mail.\n________________________________________________________________\n..
