Assuming that we're talking about the cooling fan built into the power supply, and not the fan sitting on top of the CPU -- looking in my GX280, it is a non-standard squirrel-cage blower.  I found that removal and partial disassembly of the power supply is required to work on this fan, and it is somewhat difficult to get back together properly.  A good place to look for this part would be on ebay.
