heatsink/fan for Acer Aspire Z3101

Where can I find the replacement heatsink/cpu fan for an Acer Aspire Z3101?   It is an all-in-one machine.   The CPU socket does NOT have the normal tab that an AMD stock fan clips to.

More info:  Spoke to Cooler Master, they confirmed these were specially made for Acer.  They did say that I could re-use the heatsink if I could find a fan to fit it.   They thought it might be a 70 mm.

you can measure the fan - then you'll know
there's not much on the net for that model..so i suppose you best contact ACer for it
Do you still have warranty left?

No warranty.  Acer doesn't even have the part for sale!   Amazing, since Cooler Master custom made the heatsink/fan for Acer.

Acer, as usual, is useless after warranty.   Will try to accurately measure fan/heatsink.

Ok, the fan diameter is approximately 90mm.   The 4 special holes in the mobo that accept the heatsink are in a square approximately 75mm per side.   That is the key spec, I have to have something that will fit those 4 holes.  It also has to be somewhat low profile, and it has a 4-pin connector to mobo.   My eternal gratitude if anyone can find something that would fit these specific needs.   The woman who owns this system is very poor, and I would really hate to tell her I was unable to help.   Thank you.

can you post the model name and specs?  they are normally on a sticker on the fan center
if no data available, it will be difficult, since the voltage, and current specs can vary largely for fans.
failing other data, you can post a picture of it with a ruler (or scan it on a scanner)
just hoping to find something to be able to help

Still waiting on part.  Took a lot of digging and a little begging, but maybe it is on the way.  Very unusual configuration!
