i was ust surfing the net and the comp just shutoff and restrrarted in about 2 sec by itself. and when i restarted the cpu fan didnt start spinning till about 10 secs later. could the restart have been becuase the fan stoped spinning on the cpu and it overheated?

ive been hearing weird noises coming from that fan. when i get my new socket 370 board then ill get a new fan for it then no more sloket cards.

Dood, that's why it restarted ! The cpu's overheating! Either get a new fan soon or you'll be dead in the water with a fried cpu!

or do i have to get something smaller

yes,Volcano 9 should work out, just watch for the capacitors around the cpu socket.
