    I'm looking for a 50x50x10mm blower for an AOpen mini-PC. The
    existing fan's sleeve bearings performed as expected and expired well
    before they should have.

    I've searched ebay and the web to no avail. Does anyone know of a
    source of small blowers (less than or equal to) the above
    dimensions? It has to be 12v and I would prefer it to have the third
    sense lead as it's temperature controlled.

    Thanks in advance!

    Google "All Electronics" "MCM Electronics" "Electronics Goldmine"
    "Radio Shack", etc. to find a fan. When you receive your new fan,
    visit a local pharmacy and obtain a 0.1 cc insulin hypodermic syringe
    with a 0000 needle. Fill it with light oil ("Sewing Machine Oil"... 3-
    in-1 Oil...Mobile 5 W 30 Full-Synthetic Motor Oil"). Periodically
    inject a dolop (drop, bit, little-bit) of it through the adhesive
    label in the center of the fan's blade assembly. There is no reason
    why such a fan (either sleeve or ball-bearing) should not outlive your
    computer, you, the sun, and the milky way galaxy, given sufficient
    lubrication. In fact, lubricate your present fan and you may find you
    don't actually need a new one after all. Ever.
