Spoke too soon, seems the HSF fan has died.

So need another one. Originally I stuck the standard Intel one on, intended to replace, but never got to do it.

You could just replace the fan if you plan on upgrading at some point, rather than spending a lot on a better aftermarket cooler.

True but it's like £10-20, some would be cheaper than a new fan.

Only reason I was considering a new one was spending money.

Shoved a fairly bad one on, works but heatsink is light and I am not sure about the mounting. No instructions at all but easy enough to fit.

But it works.

Still wondering how long it's going to survive. Ran fine on it's side with new HSF, so stood it up. Stopped working....

Lay it back down again, started working again.  >:(

The Intel fan needed changing anyway but this is a pain.
