For the 2nd or 3rd time, my chipset fan broke again. I am debating whether to call up ASUS, and get one from them, get a totally new heatsink/fan, or a new mobo. What do you think?

If I should get a different heatsink and fan, what should I get?

Well, does it really need it? How hot does just the heatsink itself get? I imagine some manufacturers like to throw extra fans on chips to make them look "high performace." A few of the newer motherboards I have don't even have heatsinks on the chipsets.

Well, the fan is not even spinning. It gets so hot I cannot even touch the heatsink. Whenever I boot up I get an error message saying that it is not spinning.
