unusual sized power supply fan..
Posted on 1999-11-10
Any ideas ( aside from searching the web for hours ) on where I can find a 3.5" fan for my ancient power supply? I've tried just replacing the entire power supply, but it's old and they just don't make AT power supplies this large anymore.. I even tried replacing the entire case, but with no luck. I'm down to having tore apart the power supply and taken out the fan.
Radio Shack has 3" fans and 4" fans.. but I really need a 3.5" one and the idea of just searching and searching on the web is quite a daunting task when you don't have a working computer at home!
The case was made by a company called Gecco Computers (?) in Arizona, and the fan itself is made by Oriental -- neither of which I can find in the limited searching I've done.
Anyone know of any really good sites to find and buy parts on the web? And since I've got tons of varying opinions on how hard/dangerous replacing this fan is supposed to be .. any advice on replacing it?
