I have the same mobo...the southbridge one rattled a bit until i slightly twisted it and now it's pretty quiet. the northbridge one was already quiet.

you'll have to buy a completely new southbridge hsf because the fan is integrated into the heatsink. as for the northbridge, just buy a new 40mm fan for it.

also, i don't reccomend you leave either fanless. maybe the southbridge if you have a good copper heatsink on it and plenty of case airflow, but definitely don't leave the northbridge without active cooling (imo)....especially if you overclock, even a little.
