ok MY NB fan died on my an7 mobo.. i reboot all of a sudden my mobo goes nutts with beeps stops when i check uguru (monitoring prog) and i see that my NB fan is set to off. i check it in the case and its not turning did all the normaly diagnostics on it and yes the fan is dead.

ok. here is the advice i need.

1. Ok how safe am i running this mobo 24-7 with the fan off?
My comp is running at
CPU: 91.4 F
SYS: 75 F

this will stay this way if the weather holds. but yesterday while playing half life 2 my cpu was 114 but it was warmer outside.

2. Where in the hell do i even start looking for a replacement..

btw here is a pic of my mobo. http://www.abit-usa.com/products/mb/products.php?categories=1&model=158


any ideas would help **** just keeps on breaking lol today i brok ea 500 dollar plate of my mothers at the big dinner and the washmachine hehe sigh.

DON'T run your system without a NB fan. I had the same problem you had (busted fan) and I kept the system running for an hour or so, when it completely died. The NB chip was hotter than hell and my system refused to startup. It's best to buy a new cooler and/or heatsink for your NB chip, before using your system.

i went ahead and ordered the one above. for 15 including shipping. sigh only prob people say is its a pin to install . i allways like bigger and better fans so hehe. oh well. dropped my airconditioning to 60 (its 69 outside) so my cpu is running at 93 and my syst is running at 75 so i think i will be ok temp wise i dont really have the option of leaving the comp off. so we will see.

Wow 93 is really high, are you sure your case fans are doing their job? While I see that your processor is a 2600+, my house is set to 73 degrees F and my case stays at 38 degrees C with processor at 47C under full load. This is with a AMD 2100+

um if you are running (full load)
case 38C = 100.4 F
Procc 47C= 116.6 F

Mine is running at (full load)
Case: 82.5F
PS: 96.0 F
Procc: 104.0 F

Mine is running at (no load)
Case: 82.4 F
PS: 96.8 F
Procc: 98.6 F

to simulate full load i ran 3Dmark 2005

i also used the uguru utility that comes with my motherboard for measuring temps. and did this on dual screens so i can see the temp while running the bench app.

and in my room the temp is 70 degrees F

Did you by chance try spraying fan with compressed air or checking around fan spindle?
Sometimes dust or something wrapped around spindle makes them stop spinning.

i did wipe a load of dust off of it when i last cleaned my comp out, about 3 weeks ago, and it was spinning for a day or 2 after that, i'll go down to pc world and get some compressed air on monday
