Best Replacement Internal Fan?

The last several months has found my Wii overheating after about an hour of play which causes the Wii to simply shut off. I hadn't taken a look at it since it's the kids mostly who use it and I just never think about it. Well, I finally took a look and found that the internal fan is dead.

It looks like I can get a replacement stock fan but I was wondering if anybody had any suggestions for 3rd party fans that might provide better cooling. If I'm going to open up the Wii anyway I might as well get the best fan I can get.

FYI, the warranty has expired so there's no sending it in to Nintendo. This was a launch Wii.
