I love Lenovo but some things from them make no sense :-\

I have other lenovo laptops, but on T420s and on T430 the screens are awful and make an horrible fan noise,
on the T430 I search the web and found out that I had to change the cooler for Delta Electronics 0B41087 or 0B41089, cause
the other ones have problems and thats why it makes so much noise.
I bought an 0B41087 and now its nice and quiet,

But on T420s I found nothing :-/ ... is there any cooler we could change to make less noise ? :-\

crominho, I am interested to know if you solved your fan noise issue on the T430S.

I have 3 T430 which have the same fan noise issue. I will be replacing the fan with a Delta as you suggested.

1. Have you notice any heat difference between the T430 and T430S?

2. Do you have a three wire or four wire fan on the T430S?

I also seen 4 wire PWM fans on auction sites. FRU 04W3486 for integrated graphics and FRU 04W3488 for NVS graphics. I would assume this might be a quieter fan. The Delta has four wired too on the T430.
