Which fan for 41V9748?

#1 Post by Andrew479 » Tue Jan 17, 2017 7:44 am

Hi,
fan unit in my recently purchased X60T died. Is there a suitable replacement just for the fan and not the entire assembly?
Thanks

It looks like the fan itself is only held in place by 3 small clamps and some tape.
There is a separate fan available for non-tablet X60 for less than $2 from China: http://www.ebay.com/itm/252466968516
You might be able to tape that onto the X60T fan-chassis.
Can't lose much to give that a try.
Still NOT a great day for a Guinness! (the Real Black Stuff).

So the fan for X60 is compatible with X60T's fan assembly?
If that's the case I found one locally.

BTW, congratulations on your promotion. :wink:

Thanks.
I didn't say they were compatible, just that they are available, and give it a try (because they are cheap and about the same size).

There are some x60/x60s/x60t/x61/x61s/x61t fans which won't fit in some cases. Also there are both 3-pin and 4-pin fans.

If the fans/coolers are the same size, and same number of pins, it will work.
