PLS ADVICE/CONFIRM IDENTIFY FAN FRU IN T440S

#1 Post by PRAGUEGUY » Sun Jun 07, 2020 8:06 am

Dear Thinkpadders,

my new second hand pc has a noisy fan. I used a vacuum cleaner and a bit of lubricant spray and the problem improved, but I want to replace it.
I need help with identifying which precise fan type my machine has.
the authorised resellers said these machines have two alternative forms of fan, depending on wheather the machine does, or does not, have an integrated graphics card or some extra dedicated graphics.
I would past here the info I have. I do not have acess to the previous owner, I am not sure if the machine actually has the parts according to the serial number.
The serial is PC01X2F1.

in Machine info i can read INTEL HD 4400.
Is there any way to actually physically detect what graphics card I have? so that I can let the service guys know. thanks. I do believe the machine contains the genuine parts that are listed on the parts lookup...

Google for: lenovo t440s frubom
04X0444 FAN SWG Toshiba
04X1849 FAN SWG Furukawa
04X0445 FAN UMA Toshiba
04X1850 FAN UMA Furukawa (you have this one)
where SWG = discrete nVidia graphics and UMA = integrated Intel.
Furukawa would be my preferred fan (while quieter than Tosh).
Lovely day for a Guinness! (the Real Black Stuff). And pigs CAN fly!

Dear RealBlackStuff,

the dealer of course has the Toshiba one..
but they are the real dealers.
Is the Toshiba so bad that you would advise me to buy the Furukawa from ebay? It is available , form Germany. thanks.

edit
this is the furukawa from Germany

Could you just check, before I purchase? The Toshiba is more easily avalable from the authorised dealer...but the seller seems to be ok in this case.

04X0445 FAN UMA Toshiba
04X1850 FAN UMA Furukawa (you have this one)
where SWG = discrete nVidia graphics and UMA = integrated Intel.
Furukawa would be my preferred fan (while quieter than Tosh).

Fan and fan-noise are purely personal.
My T440p has an (integrated) Delta fan, with optional AVC or Toshiba.
Even at full blast (happened so far only once!) I can hardly hear it.
I'd say get what is available or cheapest.
