I'm trying to find a generic Socket 940 CPU fan that will fit the air duct in an XW9300.
Note that two different CPU fan mounting schemes have been used on this machine. One has two grommets in the motherboard that the CPU fan screws into and the other has a plastic collar and base plate.
The form factor I'm looking for is the former (see the picture below). Two HP part numbers for fans in this form factor are 411454-001 (shown below) and 416055-001. In a pinch one could buy the parts themselves off HP's web site (for a price), but I'm trying to find a generic equivalent. I'm pretty sure I've seen a forum posting about this somewhere but I can't find it now.
Note that the dimensions are important as the machine has an air duct that fits over the fan.
Can anyone tell me the manufacturer and model of an equivalent generic part?
Better yet, do you know somewhere (preferrably in the UK) from which such an item can be obtained?
Update: I've found a very similar looking part on a U.S. parts web site, called 'Tyco 3U High Performance Athlon/Opteron cooler'. The heatsink looks virtually identical, even down to the holes drilled into the top of the casing. The main difference is the power connector on the fan. The HP one has a 4 pin connector (IIRC the 4th wire is for a tachometer on the fan), so we might be getting close. I still can't find the manufacturer's website, though - does this look familiar to anyone?
