T530 fan fit in T520?

I have seen that T520 is compatible with a T530 but is it the other way around?
I need it to combat some serious heat. Please help

I believe they are not compatible in either direction.  Different mounting and chip location.

From https://forum.thinkpads.com//viewtopic.php?t=118901

It shows the power connecters are the same and so is the CPU position the T510 is the same as well.

I'm not so sure about this...

 

The heatsinks for integrated graphs look very similar, but the models for dedicated graphs are very different and will definitely not work. See below comparison, T520 left, T530 right:
