Y900 DIY not include front case fans?

2016-06-30, 20:13 PM

I just received a Y900 DIY (P/N: 90DD000VUT) and it's great! However, there are no front fans mounted and I thought there would be due to the following picture from its product page:

Are these parts supposed to be included on this model?

 

If these fans are not included, what is a suitable part to use?

 

I had two 120 mm fans that I mounted here, but the air filter mount does not fit over them. However, the fan mounts themselves can clearly accommodate up to 140 mm fans. I would like to have two 140 mm fans, but would like to order a part that will be able to also fit with the air filter mount.

 

Thank you for reading!

Solved! See the solution

I called Lenovo and the representation confirmed to me that the machine indeed is not supposed to come with front fans.

 

That said, I sill have the issue of not being to accommodate the front fans I do have while fitting the dust filter!

The part number for the front fans is: 00XD648. Check with Lenovo support to see if they have these fans.

I'll call sales to see if I can purchase these fans a la carte.

 

I do currently have two 120 mm fans that I have installed in the front fan bay and they work fine. However, they conflict slightly with the air filter mount, as previously mentioned, and thus disrupt the seal slightly. I would prefer to have fans that fit snugly so that the filter is not compromised.

 

Do you have any idea what the dimensions for the Lenovo front fan part are? Or how I would check them online? I can and will call Lenovo when I am able.

 

Thank you so much for your help!

I can't find the dimension information. But Lenovo support might have those details if you contact them with the part number.

I called Lenovo Sales who directed me to the Encompass Parts site:

https://lenovo.encompass.com/item/10691838/Lenovo/00XD648/Fa_fans

 

The part is not in stock and even if it were, the price is ludicrous at $40 per piece (for a fan that should cost no more than $10).

 

I will attempt to contact Lenovo Encompass through the phone number listed here and see if I can obtain the dimensions for this part and then purchase an aftermarket solution that has similar or smaller dimensions so as to not conflict with the air filter. However, due to the holiday, they are currently closed.

I have one front fan, wanting to add the second.
The one that is in there, which fits within the filter is a AVC MODEL DAZA1225R2L

in case anyone is good at finding one without going thru Lenovo parts

I installed a CoolerMaster Blade Master 120 PWM fan in mine. Double check the airflow direction. Mine spun in reverse so had to turn the fan around. You want the front fans to blow inward. You need to be sure you get 25mm thickness and they must be PWM (4 pin) Mine are 600-2000 RPM 21-76 CFM.  
The unit runs cool even without it but  wanted to have positive pressure so that air is pulled in through the filters not through the holes on the side which is bringing in dust.

Re: Y900 DIY not include front case fans?

So I found one on eBay.  Square,  600-2000 RPM, 21.2-76.8 CFM fan airflow ... 4 pin connector 
4.72 x 4.72 x 0.98 in  (120mm x 120mm x 25mm)


Question, does the motherboard have a second 4 pin connector for a fan? 
(If so, about where?)
I already have one factory fan installed and would like to put in a second.

thanx!

Re: Y900 DIY not include front case fans?

Consult the manual (Hardware Maintenance Manual listed here) as it illustrates the motherboard layout.

 

For your convenience, I copied it here:

As you can see, there are actually five four-pin fan headers. The front bay fans are best routed to the lower right headers, labeled 9 and 12 above, and the case has nooks for doing so. 

 

Although any fan will work if connected to any header, the system and aux fans are controlled together as a single group while the CPU fans (3 and 4 above) are controlled together as separate single group, meaning that all fans in a given group will run at the same PWM signal under default BIOS settings.

 

Note, the Y900DIY comes with only two fans, the system fan and one CPU fan. (Ignoring the fan in the power supply unit.)
