Also, please note that the line side capacitors can store a potentially lethal charge even after the PSU is switched off and unplugged. If you aren't familiar with proper procedures for working on equipment with hazardous voltages, you may want to pass on this mod.
Yeah...if the PSU is old, it might just be easier to buy a replacement. Even if you can safely replace a fan, other componenets are bound to have degraded, and it won't do you much good fixing a fan just to have the PSU fried in the next thunderstorm.
On second thought, let's not go to TechReport. Tis a silly place.
