Anyone know where to buy a replacement fan in the US? Or a compatible fan that maybe will last longer? I'd prefer not to order from Europe, and I don't need a new heatsink to go with the fan.

I dismantled my display to see if maybe poor contact was the reason for the noise. Nope. The fan is just worn out. Super awesome for a $2000 monitor to have a fan go bad after just 18 months. Taking off the cover was a pain, all the wires are a pain, and other than cleaning out the dust and replacing the thermal paste, I'm still stuck with a noisy monitor. :(
