I am researching motherboards to build a new PC, and a lot of the forums I am reading indicate that many of the newer boards have problems with the Northbridge fan going out. Has anyone else noticed this? Is there something I can do to decrease the odds of this happening to me (without replacing the fan)? Is there an easy way to replace the stock fan with another part that would be more reliable?
While I am wondering about this in general, someone may be able to give me advice specific to the motherboard I am looking at. Here is the link to it on NewEgg (MSI K8N Neo4 Platinum):
