i had one crap out before and i never did anything abut it, no problems what so ever- if you feel so inclined i'd jus slap a lil heatsink from a vid card or stock processor on it use some thermal adhesive-

Where can you get a replacement? The fan on the chipset hs for my Asus A7M266 board is kinda crappin out, whines like crazy if the case gets bumped just right.

It depends on your chipset and if your overclocking or not, If you are overclocking or have intergrated video I'd be worried, otherwise even the dead fan + tiny heatsink w/ a case w/ ok airflow should still be fine.
