Is it safe to use the dGPU fan on the iGPU motherboard? I assume it ought to be, the part that would connect to the dGPU would just hang over the part of the PCB where is isn't, but figured I should ask before trying. I'm wondering if the different FRUs are the same physical part, but the dGPU FRU has a thermal pad installed, or something like that.
Should I even be bothering with that, or should I go the T500/W500 fan route instead?

Make sure to clean up and refresh the thermal paste.
Don't forget to apply Middleton's BIOS.

I still have a couple of T61 dGPU mobos up for sale.
(stable under reduction)
Heatsinks aside, I recall researching the same matter aways back and and discovering the latter T400 era (and T500 era, I'd surmise) Furukawa fan models to be more durable than the Toshiba ones. (I forget the FRU)
