My Akasa laptop cooling fan has become noisy after a good few years of use. where can i get it serviced


sounds like the bearings are bad in the motors. It would be cheaper to replace unit than fixing it. new fans/motors would cost more.

How do i get the cabinet off to get to the fans on a cwc 900


You'll have to drill out the little plastic tabs which hide the star screws. I used a Dremel and a quick tap on each little tab to make a small hole, then pried out the plug. Then use a star tool (T10) to remove screws. The fans get dusty and sieze up. Lousy assembly to keep clean, but will be easier now. I had to replace the larger fan.

Sounds like a problem with your fan controller. The controller is simply controlling the voltage applied to the fan to adjust the speed. Have you tried a fan without a speed control built in?

How to change


Hi

Replacing the heatsink fan on a PC is not a difficult job, but it pays to be thorough, especially with cleaning the top of the CPU die before replacing the fan.

Don't be mean with money when choosing a new cooler either. With CPU coolers you get what you pay for. I personally always use coolers from a company called Zalman.

Ok ..with that out of the way ..the basics are ...remove old cooler..

They are either held on by a sprung clip that fits across the cooler and locates in lugs on the cpu socket surround, or they are held by screws that go through the motherboard.

Clean the top face of the cpu die carefully making sure to use a blunt implement ..... scratches on the machined face will lead to premature failure due to overheating.

If the cooler you buy has a "thermal pad" stuck to the face of the heatsink, then remove this too and clean up the heatsink face. Use good quality thermal paste on the top face of the CPU die, then fit the new cooler. Getting the right amount of thermal paste is a bit of an art .... too much is a bad as too little. The paste is NOT a glue. The paste simply fills in any imperfections on the machined surfaces of the cpu die and the heatsink to aid heat transfer.

Does this sound complicated? It isn't really. The key is not to rush it and make sure the surfaces are completley clean and the thermal paste applied correctly.

Here is a link to one tutorial on fitting cpu coolers that you might find useful:
