My PIII system has a bad fan on the slot style CPU. Is there a way I can replace the fan with out damaging the CPU? I have had to resort to an external fan .

I have to keep this system running for a few more months. Once I get my other motherboard fixed I can retire this system. I would like to keep it for back up though. Hence the reason I would like to fix the fan.

if the fan is integrated into the slot component that contains the die, it is probably best to leave it alone... a high cfm case fan blowing directly through the same area as the old fan might keep it cool enough to avoid damage...

Thats what I figured and hoped you would not say. Oh well, it is about time I got rid of that system anyway. :( :roll:

You can easily take the CPU out of the slot (slots were a lot easier than the socket 370, no risk of putting a screwdriver through the motherboard).. Then you can replace the fan itself, or even repair it...

I will try that once I get my other system up and running.
