Hello, I have a Rampage III Extreme upon which I installed the OPTIONAL FAN-THERMAL MODULE. I believe it is on the verge of destruction as it has begun making a noticeable hum upon startup. After a while this hum does fade away.
I have searched the internet to try to find a replacement to no avail. I will attempt on Monday to contact ASUS, but just was hoping that somebody on the forum would be able to offer some releative information if a spare part is out there and where I might be able to aquire one.
Sincerely, Robert K.

Yeah, it may be actually better to find an other fan with the same dimensions... you may found even a better one... :) If you stick to the original one, you may want to try applying some WD40 to the existing fan... or, I may have a spare one (with heatsink+fan)... - PM me with your location...

Thank You for your responses. I see that the fan is detachable, so just replacing the fan is an option. Also, applying some WD40 could prolong its life. Thanks again....
