Have a ringedge here with busted CPU Fan, works fine but fan is just sitting on the cpu which is not ideal, can I replace it with any other cpu fan for socket 775? Anyone done this and can recommend a replacement?

Hi mozie hope yr well ? the fan will just be a standard 775 fan. Pretty much any cpu fan should suit. You have a picture ??

Yeah all good mate, thanks for the reply I ordered a standard one online for 775 looks like it's just a standard Intel stock cooler on it, clips down rather than needing a mounting plate on the back which confused me as its years since I had an Intel cpu. will give it a go when it arrives, now just need to burn the multi image to a ssd, any idea of the best tool I could use to write the Img file?

I just replaced the pins mate.

I bought some of these:

I bought mine from China though, think it was 10pc for a couple of quid.
