Lately I'm hearing a lot of noise from the home dock's fan. I tried unsuccessfully to blowing out stray dust with a can of air aimed into the back opening. Looks like a replacement fan will be needed. I was hoping to have one on hand before cracking it open. From what I can tell I'll need s 40x10mm, 12v fan. Somewhere I found (and then lost) a higher quality copy the last photo here:

Unfortunately that exact fan is no longer produced. Should this one do the trick, or is there a better choice?

That Noctua model is at least as good as any. I have a couple of the original fans here, but postage alone would be more than that one from Amazon. smile
