Mine ran like that for 53 weeks. The warranty was for 52. When it died, 
it litterally blew one of the voltage regulator ICs on the motherboard. 
All I saw was a flash of light at the same time as a loud bang and the 
top right corner of the IC disappeared. Out was towards me but I didn't 
feel it hit nor could I find it.

The current fans look like the Antec fans you can see in a Circuit City 
or Best Buy. You can mail order them but I think I would buy one sooner 
than that :). You have been having problems for quite a while now and 
that may be what is going on.
