Looking for a replacement ABIT KT7A chipset fan

I've got a PC with an ABIT KT7A motherboard, and the fan has started to get noisy. It seems that all the fans are failing at once -- the PSU was sounding terrible, so I replaced it, but the system still sounds bad. I want to replace the little fan that sits over one of the main chips on the motherboard (it's the north bridge, I think), but it's not a common PC part AFAIK.

I've found something that would probably be OK in the Jaycar catalog, but it seems expensive. Anybody know if you can get an official replacement part?
