I've had my little TC-1770 for a few months now and for the most part it's been fine. However a couple of weeks ago, particularly with one app, the CPU fan has gotten really noisy. So I'm looking for recommendations for a replacement fan that:

  1. Is really quiet.
  2. That a stone hands non-techy like me will be able to pretty much plug and play.

Thanks guys.

    Can you elaborate further on "noisy"?

    If it is making a rattling sound, it might be defective and could be replaced under warranty. If it is just speeding up and getting louder at its "moving air" sound, you might be right that it could use a more efficient and quiet cooler.

    It's not rattling. More of a buzzing sound. But maybe I should contact Acer about a replacement. Still if anyone has something they really like, let me know.

    The guys in the gaming section swear by the Noctua coolers…
