  1. Can I Replace My Laptop Fan?


    My Laptop is a 2015 Windows 10 HP BeatsAudio 8gb RAM and Pavilion 17. The fan has been roughly loud and annoying lately getting noisy for absolutely no reasons. No viruses and it has been cleaned thoroughly.

    I did look at the ML fans from corsair as I do like and trust corsair stuff but though I give Noctua a try. I do like them. Will be putting my old corsair AF 140mm back in to see me over until I get them replaced. RMA in process just have to send them the LOT code on fan to proceed.

    Time to replace my Corsair AF140 case fans and looking for you input guys

    My current fan setup is as follows: (1 or 2 current fans beginning to fail)


    • Front: 2 x Corsair AF140 White LED fans (Intake)
    • Top (Rad): 2 x NZXT 140mm Aer P radiator-optimized fan (Push Exhaust)
    • Back: 1 x Corsair AF140 fan (Exhaust)
    • Bottom: 1 x Corsair SP120 Fan (Intake)

    My proposed fan setup: (Budget constraints)


    • Front: 2 x NF-A14 PWM chromax.black.swap (Intake)
    • Top (Rad): 2 x NZXT 140mm Aer P radiator-optimized fan (Push Exhaust)
    • Back: 1 x NF-A14 PWM chromax.black.swap (Exhaust)
    • Bottom: 1 x Corsair SP120 Fan (Intake)

    Recommended by Noctua:

    Email support recommendation after asking them for advice:

    Dear Andrew.

    first of all many thanks for your interest and your inquiry at Noctua.

    The best possible Airflow for your case looks as follows:


    • Front: 2x NF-A14 PWM chromax.black.swap
    • Top (Rad): 2x NF-A14 PWM chromax.black.swap
    • Back: 1x NF-A14 PWM chromax.black.swap
    • Bottom: 2x NF-S12A PWM chromax.black swap.
    This configuration would give you the best possible airflow, but it's neither cost-effective nor quiet.

    Here's my recommended configuration.


    • Front: 2x NF-S12A PWM chromax.black.swap
    • Top (Rad): 2x NF-A14 PWM chromax.black.swap in push mode.
    • Rear: None
    • Bottom: 1x NF-S12A PWM chromax.black.swap
    I'll briefly explain why this config is the best in terms of airflow/noise ration and price.

    The NF-A14 doesn't like it when there isn't enough space on the suction side and will emit an annoying suction noise if placed in the front of your case. Our NF-S12A PWM has a very neutral and pleasant sound to it, while still moving a lot of air.

    Having 2x NF-S12A PWM in the front and 1x NF-S12A PWM chromax.black.swap on the bottom instead of 2x NF-A14 PWM will give you higher airflow while also being quieter. This solution is a bit expensive but definitively worth it.

    It's not necessary to mount fans on the back of your case, since your 3x NF-S12A chromax.black.swap and 2x NF-A14 PWM chromax.black.swap (mounted on the radiator) will provide sufficient airflow.

    Replacement Chassis Fans


    Old thread I see but I love the Corsair fans. I currently have 2x140 and 1x120 HD fans and 2 x ML Pro 140 on my radiator. The HD are just such solid fans, quiet and of course lovely RGB. The same can be said for the ML Pro, solid stuff. If you've had Corsair AF fans these are a big step up. I have some Noctua and love those too. *Biggrin
