Does anyone know the airflow of the fan on nVidia's reference cooler for GeForce 9500 GT (like the one here, middle of the page)?

The fan died on a friend's computer and I'm thinking about replacing it. The cooler looks just like the one on the site I linked to.

I'm thinking about replacing the fan with one which has similar capabilities, but I have no idea what are capabilities of fan on 9500.

If you buy another 40mm fan like the one on the reference cooler, it too will be loud and will fail. So when this happens to me, I replace it with an aftermarket cooler from Zalman or Arctic Cooling.

Alternatively, you could remove the cover from the reference heat sink and zip-tie on any 80mm or 120mm fan.

I think that I'm going to use the 80mm or 120mm option. – AndrejaKo Feb 3 '11 at 18:02
