Replacement 40 x 20 mm, 5V Fan for 3Com Baseline Switch 2928-SFP Plus

The fan on the above switch was on its last leg.  The Fan dimensions are 40x40x20mm. It is a 5V fan. I am looking for a replacement. The photos allow anyone with a similar fan to comment and suggest a replacement. I am considering the Noctua NF-A4x20 5V, Premium Quiet Fan, 3-Pin, 5V Version (40x20mm, Brown)  and would appreciate if anyone could confirm whether they have managed to get this model to work and what how they paired the wires of the Noctua to the red, white and black wires of the 3Com fan. If anyone has used another brand please share model and link. Important that the fan is quite and good quality .

In this edition of GTL, we look at games with a twist. The first two are simulations that should raise your awareness of how difficult it is to judge what goes and what doesn't go on social media platforms. Many content moderators are paid pennies and are expected to maintain high turnover rates. Unlike real life, you aren't exposed to graphic content in these simulations. The third share is directed at those who like solving puzzles using code. Moderator Mayhem Type: Game / Simulation Moderator Mayhem is a web-based simulation aimed at a mature audience. It was published in May 2023. It was designed by Randy Lubin and Mike Masnick of Techdirt . The material covered is heavy, going into subject matter such as drugs, illegal activities, spam, revenge, and porn. There is no explicit content . You are an employee (or contractor) for the social media company TrustHive and will vet content, deciding what to keep and what to reject. You
