    I used this one in mine. But note that the wider profile forced me to alter the venting. Oops! Nice fan, but I would have gotten something else if I had realized that the Arctic fan wouldn't quite fit the enclosure.

    You do NOT have to use the original fan. You need to match the pins so that it fits, and you want the airflow to be the same or more. The fan should be "stupid", with two wires or 3rd for a tach signal. In my cooler, the board itself controls the fan speed. So a PWM fan might not work.

    When I shopped I found many that did not meet the original specs of 39 cfm on a 0.16A draw. Does it matter? Probably not much. But there are choices that DO meet the spec.
