correct fan?

This is a followup to:

http://www.experts-exchange.com/Hardware/Desktops/Q_21156592.html

there are two fans attached to the back of the computer. one is the power supply fan. the other seems to be cooling the cpu. its attached the the back grill of the computer. then there is a green plastic tube like device that serves as a tunnel bridge between the fan and cpu. In an attempt to make the pc quieter is this the part that replaces this fan:?

Normally, one uses a cpu fan to cool a cpu, but if Dell designed it with a case fan to cool the cpu, then this should work.  The important thing is the green plstic tube should fit around the fan.  Measure the current fan that is there and see if it is 80mm - if it is, you are set.

I don't think they are well-known, at least not as a source of high-performance machines.  You can usually tell by looking at the brand of motherboard they use: if it's ECS or PCChips, it's a cheap brand.  I see that they use Asus and Intel, so I'm inclined to think that they go with good parts.

Maybe i'll just build my own.  What do you think of Microcenter? Any advice on what to get? ie motherboard, cpu, chassis, fans, hdd, etc.  I want to get a very quiet box.

Microcenter isn't too big on my list of favorite vendors, either - Newegg is, because they carry good quality products and have a very good return policy.  If you're going to build, take a look at this question I participated in, to get an idea of good quality and quiet parts (Home Theater PCs need to be quiet): http://www.experts-exchange.com/Hardware/Desktops/Q_21146998.html
