Question about IBM Computer System Cooling
I have a IBM thinkpad notebook which was bought in China in 2005. The model is 1846cc6 (discrete graphic).
Now, there is a big noise with my notebook. I want to buy a new CPU fan to replace the old one. Could you please give me some assistance?
Fans are fairly easy to find and replace. Open the notebook and see what size it is (OD and thickness) in mm. Most run on 12v, but some are 5v. There should be some lable or marking on the fan. Then go to www.mouser.com, and select a fan that matches the dimensions and volts. Mouser has a large selection. Sometimes the connector for the fan is tiny, but it is a quick job to splice the new wires in place.
