I bought a Supermicro X10SVC mini-itx m/b a few months ago and didn't realize this model came in 2 flavors: one with and one w/o a cpu fan.  You guessed it--I got the one w/o.  

Under heavier load I'm seeing spikes in the cpu temperature.  Hasn't gone critical but at times is too close for comfort.

Anyone have any recommendations for an aftermarket fan I can position close to the cooling fins?  I can fabricate any kind of bracket to hold it so that isn't a problem.
