Fan replacement on Lenovo H50 / 90BG model
There is only one fan in this machine. The first one died after a year or so. This second fan is now grinding upon startup and not running properly (after a cleaning etc.).
I want to replace this fan but it has an unusual four-pin connector that plugs into the motherboard, where it says CPU Fan. The first time I replaced this fan, my local computer shop had to special order it because of this unusual connector. The four pins that it fits onto are about the diameter of pencil lead -- very skinny. It took about 6 weeks for the replacement fan to come from China.
Can someone tell me the name or type of fan connector that Lenovo uses for this fan? I'd like to see if one is available to order online and hopefully have a faster delivery time. I know there are other four-pin connectors, but this one seems to be uncommon.
Thanks for any assistance.

You can check the fan part number from the parts lookup page here.
Filter Commodity type for Fans to filter.
With the fan part number, you can try searching it from other resellers online for costing and availability.
