[RndTbl] Noisy fan

IIRC, the fan depends on the CPU, the motherboard socket, and the case
dimensions/clearance.  I've found a vague reference to this fan being
used on an AM3 socket, does that describe your situation?  If so, the
forum poster I found replaced his AVC fan with a "Be Quiet!" brand
"Shadow Rock TF2" (https://www.bequiet.com/en/cpucooler/1074) which may
or may not fit your case.  (And holy cow is it ever expensive!) 

On a related note, Google Translate does a horrible job of translating
Hungarian to English. 

Its Bulgarian is almost as bad

Bottom line: it looks like you currently have a 70mm x 70mm x 20mm fan
designed for an AM3 socket. 

The closest match I've found so far is:

Everything else I can find is both enormous and expensive. 

YMMV, good luck!
