  1. Could I just leave it off and put a fan exhaust below to suck the warm air away?

    I've heard about norbright or something? for use instead of a fan... i'm from the UK so where could I get this from?

    Norbright seems to be more suited for cats and dogs, rather than PCs.
    Have a look at these for a reference:

    I'm sure some dealer in the UK will have a replacement fan.
    The 40mm fan alone should also be available from the likes of Maplin, I guess.
    You'd risk the graphics chip without a fan or one that is too far away.
