    Depends on how much you want to spend...I personally would go to a computer repair place and ask how much for a fan. My guess is it will be cheap or free. You just need one out of a junk computer. You might even try to go to your transfer station and ask them if you can remove one from a junker...

    I spent a dollar at a resale store for a plug in air purifier with a fan.
