When I meant rating, I meant how much airflow do you need... I'm assuming you're not too technical and simply want silence. Well, ideally you would probably want to change the heatsink for a new one as per Mark's adivce but if that's too technical, then keep things easy and go for ez2remember's advi...

Or you can try the overclocking store (google search), their postage is free so its quite handy for smaller orders (they are a bit more expensive so for a bigger order you may wish to consider another retailer)...

I also reckon you probably could, although for the little noise it does, a 80mm fan running at 5/7 Volts may be safer... Guess it depends how much 3D you do - attnet how do you use yours?
