Its time to change the fan of my T60 Thinkpad. I was thinking to replace the entire cooling system (fan and heatsink). Is it possible, in terms of compatibility, to use an T61 heatsink and fan? I mean having an FRU:41V9932 and going for FRU:42W2820. I've heard that T61's cooling system, is better than T60, its more cooler, more quite etc.
Is anyone of you has had an experience of this nature? Are they physical compatible?
Thinkpad T60, 14.1"
Product ID: 2623-D6U
CPU T2400 Intel Core Due (Yonah), 31W
GPU: ATI X1300

Thank you for your reply. What about on this fan FRU:41W6407? Is this an improved copy of 41V9932? Or its has to do with CPU/GPU type? Can I use 41W6407 as a substitute for 41V9932 on the same heatsink?

They are both for 4:3 machines with discreet graphics. They should be equivalent but made by different suppliers.

Actually it's pretty easy to fit a T61/T61p heatsink from a Standard screen, or 15.4" widescreen into any T60 model (fans from 14,1 widescreen will not fit), You will need to file a small notch in the T60 fan bracket so it will clear the larger heatsink used on discrete graphic models, and you'll also want to use thermal paste on the gpu instead of the grey pads used on T60, but this heatsink mod is one of the most effective mods you can do for a T60, but if you really want to do this right I'd consider going all the way with a T61 motherboard conversion, as this will offer many potential benefits such as use of faster penryn class cpu chips, max of 8gb ram vs 3gb for your t60, twice the hdd transfer speed with use of middleton's bios, and better graphic options, but if you're only concerned about fan/heat issues then the fan mod alone will provide a huge improvement,

i have a t60 and i ordered 42w2461 heatsink from ebay..i will fit it or not ?
No, that part is for a 14" widescreen and won't fit any T60 model

i have read that i can fit it on t60
please let me know who advised you that a T61, 14" widescreen fan will fit a t60.
If your t60 has intel graphics then any standard screen or 15.4" widexcreen fan can be used. If you have ATI graphics then your T61 fan must be for discrete nVidia graphics and you must use thermal paste on the gpu chip instead of the grey pad, and you must file a notch in the retainer bracket so it will clear the larger heatsink.
