    Go for one of the artic coolers I have always been a big fan, much better performance and quieter than the stock cooling

    If they are not under warranty anymore, take the fan off by unscrewing it, looking at the model number and plugging it into google. Most of the time you will be able to find someone else selling the same fan for like $5, most of them electronics parts distributors.

    You could do as I suggested and get a third party one, the Artic coolers are very cheap, easy to install and perform well. Google them there are plenty of reviews about :)
