My A1200 didn't smell fishy and I was all "meh, I don't need to replace them"

...until the pins for the IDE connector fell off.



When soldering in a replacement there _was_ a distinctive fishy smell so I would personally advise doing it sooner rather than later.

There are many places that do it, there is a sticky here http://eab.abime.net/showthread.php?t=88046 that covers the various people that do it.
