Someone told me to save the fans from inside the computer, but I am running out of space and I stopped taking the fans out. Question is;
Is there any real value to the fans inside a computer? i.e. the ones on heats sinks and on the side of towers, not the ones on the power supply box.
I want to say no, there is a huge value to them, I hope I am not wrong.

Working those small sub-80mm fans are worth 50c-75¢ At most unless it's a variable speed transed motor.
So no. No value beyond cbm scrap. They're 6 for $1 at many computer outlets.

Is that price each or per pound?

Each and at the highest extremes.
Like i said earlier 5 or 6 per dollar is normal if you look for itor (thats for new ones). And there are people on ebay and HDE selling them in blocks of 100+ for 10¢ or less +shipping.
