Will this T60 HSF
fit in place of this T500 HSF
in an Intel-only T500?
I've held my Switchable T500 HSF up against the guts of one of my Intel T500s and the dGPU-extension competes with the Intel's modem connector, so it's a no-go putting the dual CPU pipes Switchable HSF in an Intel T500. But this T60 HSF
is for Intel-only models and has dual CPU pipes so should be better, right? If it fits, right? Which is my question: does it fit? I know the left vent is shorter on the T500 due to the inclusion of Displayport so I worry a T60 HSF will not fit for that reason. Although, I could mod it in.
Looking in the MTM table there is a 2242-RP8 which is an Intel T500 with the hottest T9900 so apparently the Intel heatsink should be able to cool things effectively, despite having just 1 CPU pipe. But my Intel HSF apparently sucks cooling just a T9400 so I'd like to replace it with something better (and cheaper) so a cheap T60 HSF with 2 CPU pipes might be what I'm looking for.
