    I bought the OEM AMD Athlon 3200+ Venice that comes with a heatsink and fan. The fan is really loud :hsugh: I want to replace just the fan. But what size is the fan? 80mm? I am guessing that's what it is.

    I was looking at the XP-90, but that thing costs like ~$35 + quiet fan and I will also need to buy the thermal paste remover. So it's gonna run me up about $50. So I will just give this fan thing a try.

    First off you don't need thermal paste remover.. just use rubbing alcohol and a coffee filter.

    and i do believe the fan is either a 60mm or a 70mm however you won't find a lot of fans that small that will provide decent airflow and be quiet, since most are only 15mm wide.

    You don't need to buy an XP-90 to have a better HSF than stock either, there are a lot of HSFs out there that are better than stock and quieter. Just don't buy a thermaltake one (with the except of the Sonic Tower, Big Typhon).

    What's wrong with Thermaltake products? I'm using a Thermaltake Venus 12 on my 3500+ and it works perfectly.

    they work, but their fans are far from quiet.

    Weird that the 3200 fan makes a lot of noise...the OEM fan on my 3000 is great.

    I dunno what you people consider "a lot" of noise but my OEM 3200+ fan cools great and in my opinion it's not loud at all.

    XP-90 is worth every penny. "Thermal paste remover" is WD40, which IMHO should come standard with the purchase of every home. I've got a Nexus 92mm fan that sits on top of a 3200+ Venice; right now it's sitting at 37 C and gets up to 50 C at load (it's in a crappy case - In-Win S500T on order). The Nexus runs at only 1600 RPM & at 12v is barely perceptible.
