Sounds like a better PSU is a more worthwhile investment than a new fan for it.

not everyone has money for a new PSU, a fan is like $7 and a PSU is $70 or more, that kind of comments never really help, anyway

I'm assuming the old fan had a simple, 2 pin connector or its wires were directly soldered to the board right?

what fan did you used to replace it? you might have to check the solder OR the connector if it has one, if the connector is different (lets say 3 pin instead of 2) it won't work

They don't really help, however they absolutely are not 70$ unless it's a pretty expensive build. Hell, the CX450M is currently 19.99$ and miles better than that.

So people can buy a new PC, often with a somewhat beefy GPU but don't care for reliable power delivery that will protect the components connected to it in the event of a power surge or due to poor quality in general? Okay. Wrong priorities.  If you're so poor you can't afford a good PSU, don't build a new PC but get a prebuilt that already has a somewhat decent PSU. OEMs like HP and Dell at least put good quality PSUs in their system, even if they're low wattage.

If OP is from US. Rest of the world rarely gets good PSUs cheap. It's maybe $50 for quality PSU.

True. I do live outside the US, it's just that in the US you can get some pretty good PSU deals so I was pointing that out.
