Today, we will be seeing a replacement fan from Rangale for the Lenovo Y510p laptop. This is my 3nd replacement fan as 2 has already failed previously:
The last replacement fan actually lasted a whole year, which at least was something. I’m not sure how long the new one will last, but we’ll see since it’s a different brand than the last 2. This fan also comes in a nice branded box, unlike the generic past one.
The fan is the only thing we have inside the box. It fits very nice and is wrapped on a plastic bag:
Here is the fan after taking it out of the bag:
Replacing the fan in this laptop is very easy. We simply need to take out the cover:
We then simply take out 3 small screws:
Here are the old and new fans side-by-side:
They are almost identical, with the fan being from the same brand. Finally, here’s the new fan installed:
So far, the laptop is working at optimum CPU speeds with no throttle. Only time will tell how long this fan will last.
