    The LGA 1170 doesn't have a CPU cooling fan per say like the LGA1150, it has a special heatsink with mounting clips which has a special fan screwed into it as in the caption below. If your fan has stopped working, then measure the fan size and try to get just the fan, you could replace it with a laptop fan or similar as these fans are not available and you will just have to search for one, good luck finding one =)

    Thanks for the rapid response. Do you know if there is a source for the whole assembly?

    No, Acer only sells it bundled in the motherboard assembly. There might be others out there, but I doubt there's a cross reference.

    I own this system and had the same issue.   ( Evercool sells a 30mm and 40mm fan that fit this heat sink and has the same 3 pin connectors  Amazon 7-10 bucks.)
