    Most systems will run fine without active cooling on the chipset. Odds are very slim at the worst that you will damage the mainboard. Chances are that the worst you'll see will be a lack of stability (regular crashes) if the chipset is getting too hot.

    That depends on the system, but for this specific one it's probably fine. That said, it's not that hard nor that expensive to just get a new fan. Just grab the appropriate size off of on online retailer. I'd recommend Jab-Tech.com for cooling supplies. You'll end up paying ten bucks at Newegg... Of course, I'm assuming you're American. No idea where you'd shop otherwise.
