Default dell dimension 8400 case/cpu fan replacement

anyone know where one can get a fan without the shroud for a dimension 8400? It comes with a 5-pin Dell connector. Does anyone else carry the fan besides Dell?

You can sometimes find them at places like sidewindercomputers.com . Dell charges way too much for them. But if you can get hold of the Dell part number it will make googling for direct replacements a lot easier.

look on eBay. You can find lots of Dell stuff on there if you look at the right times....

you could always just put a regular fan on it and use a standard molex power connector or just cut the 5 pin header off the old fan and splice it on the new fan

using the standard molex power connector would cause the BIOS to complain at every boot. I checked, and there's no way to turn off the check in the BIOS.

Also, don't most fans have 3 wires? In the 5-pin connector there are 4 wires and one empty. Does anyone know how I can wire it?

Thanks.
