x230 compatible fans (want to upgrade and make it quieter)

Does anyone know if there are multiple models of the fan that came with the x230? Also, is the fan a standard part. I.e.: could I buy a fan that was intended for another laptop but is that same size and will therefore fit into the x230. My other idea is to somehow change the RPM speed of the fan. Th...

I don't know much about routing (is this routing?) but I don't think you would get the pixel accuracy you would need with a wooden jig.

Re: X220 FHD Upgrade?

But even if it does, the bevel's hollow is 12.5" only. Yeah it would have to be modified like the X330. This 13.1" panel is single channel lvds with an offset connector. It's TN but the SONY VAIO VPCZ1 laptop it's used in seems to get good reviews regarding it's display. http://www.panelook.com/LT1...

Re: X220 FHD Upgrade?

There is someone in the german thinkpad forum who dared to open his X320 Display. https://thinkpad-forum.de/threads/200622-X320-X330-X220-X230-mit-13-3-quot-Full-HD-IPS-Display?p=2054632&viewfull=1#post2054632 The release of the entire Bezel was by the way so elaborate that the display afterwards w...

Re: X220 FHD Upgrade?

What about 3D printing the bevel and then dremeling the existing LCD mount points? Anyone could do that (once I had created a file for 3D printing). Can figure something out to secure the LCD. I've used a 12.5 and a 13.3. It's amazing how much those inches count. There is also a lot more range in 13...

Re: X220 FHD Upgrade?

Pepe!

What do you think about putting a 13 inch into the x230 (like the x330)? Do you know how kingkonglue did this physically. I.e. what bevel was used etc.

Ideally I would use a 13 inch 1080. Would that be compatible with your mod?
