    Had a fan in the PC drop dead yesterday, of course it was the one
    dedicated to PSpice :-(

    It was a "chipset fan" on an ASUS A7M266 MB.

    Can't find a duplicate anywhere... perusing via Google I find it's a
    loser by design.

    So I spent all yesterday afternoon filing a heat sink adapter to
    proper shape.

    Installed a good sturdy ball-bearing fan.

    Fired the PC up, everything looked OK.

    As I was about to button it up the exhaust fan in the back quit.
    Fooling with it revealed intermittent leads where the wires entered
    the motor housing.

    Another trip to Fry's.

    Got everything on the air at 7:00AM this morning.

    What a day ;-)

    You have Fry's in Phoenix? Or is it Phry's in Feenix?

    Have you seen the www.quietpc.com site? I've not used them (PC still
    in warranty), but I probably will quite soon.

    Yup, at Baseline and I10. I think there are others in the Phoenix
    area as well. We're becoming another LA... I don't know every detail
    of the town like I did 40 years ago... back then I could have driven a
    cab, without using a map.
