    Hi,

    I've got a SunPCi II (coprocessor board) that has a
    noisey cooler. So far, I've not been able to find
    a direct replacement -- nor anything else that comes
    close to the same form factor, etc.

    This auction has an illustration of the cooler:

    Any suggestions as to how I could repair/replace/emulate
    this and still fit in the space available (i.e., not
    interfere with the adjacent cards)?

    Thanks!

    Yeah, that seems pretty obvious! ;-)
    No joy in any of those places.

    If you examine the photo, it is not a conventional fan
    nor cooler. Even the CPU socket to which it mounts is
    non-standard (else I could have just found a cooler
    designed for *that* particular type of socket!)
     
  3. Why not post this on the Sun Rescue mailing list?

    geoff.

    No luck, there. (I could replace the board but I would rather
    *fix* it). Apparently, no one knows of a source for the coolers
    themselves.
