What replacement fan will fit my T410?

2016-11-18, 19:26 PM

The ads I see on Amazon etc say that there is more than one fan type for a T410, and be sure to get the one that fits your machine.  How to make the match?

 

My T410 is a "Type 2537-22U" according to a sticker on its bottom.  At https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/documents/migr-74566, I find a table that maps these computer types to model numbers of parts including "fan assemblies".  It lists "Fan assembly, integrated" 45M2721 and 45M2723 as suitable for type "2537-22x", but (by omission) it implies that "Fan assembly, discrete" 45M2722 and 45M2724 are not suitable to type "2537-22x".  (I assume that, in that type code, "x" is a variable, so "2537-22U" is a member of that type.)

 

Ah.  I just learned at https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/documents/migr-74746 that the two different fan assemblies are for integrated graphics and discrete graphics models, respectively - their heat sink components are quite different.

 

Ah again.  From pix on Amazon, I infer that the two "integrated" assemblies have slightly different heat sinks, but both are for integrated graphics.  The 45M2721 is shown here: https://www.amazon.com/Genuine-IBM-Thinkpad-Cooling-Heatsink/dp/B00MTWDB9E/ and the 45M2723 is here https://www.amazon.com/IBM-Original-Thinkpad-45M2723-Assembly/dp/B004QWCTLG

 

From this, I want to conclude that if I get a model 45M2721 or 45M2723, I'm cool.  Is that right?

 

Also, it's possible (and much cheaper) to buy a fan without buying the heat sink assembly as well.  Anybody know which fan models fit into the "Fan assembly, integrated"?

 

~ Thanks in advance!

Correct, I'd personally would go for 45M2723 due to the two heatpipes. And I wouldn't bother about buying them with no fan and buying the fan separately. Too much hassle to spare few bucks in my opinion...

 

Add to your shopping list a good thermal paste like Artic Silver 5, Artic Cooling MX2, Noctua NT-H1 or Thermal Grizzly Krynoaut.

Just to confirm:  I got the fan assembly you suggested, installed it, and it's working great.  Thanks once again, Tasurinchi.
