CPU Fan Replacement

I'm looking for a replacement CPU fan for a HP Pavilion 570-p033w since the one that came with the computer (Cooler Master FA08025M12LPA) is not working and is not available from Best Buy. What do you recommend?

Re: CPU Fan Replacement

Hi there, bbnj,

 

I know with summer coming up a good fan becomes more important to stay cool! ... All kidding aside, we would love to help you find a CPU fan. 

 

While we sell a number of CPU fans, I'm not seeing any that match that exact size of the model number you provided. Without taking a look at your case in-person, it would be nearly impossible to advise if a larger one may fit. Otherwise, we may advise reaching out to the manufacturer to see if they have approved replacements they may be able to advise.

Re: CPU Fan Replacement

Thank you for your response.

 

Model:NS-PCF808 SKU:5976302 is showing as 80mm, which is the size of what came with the computer according to a Google search. Do you think that would work?

Re: CPU Fan Replacement

bbnj,

 

Great question! 

 

The item you provided, Insignia™ - 80mm Case Cooling Fan, is a case fan. Initially, you mentioned a CPU fan. There's some differences on how these fit, work, and connect. Were you looking for a CPU fan or a case fan?

Re: CPU Fan Replacement

I don't know the difference between the two. The computer itself is calling it a CPU fan and the fan itself is a Cooler Master FA08025M12LPA, which according to a Google search is a 80mm x 25mm 4-Wire fan.

Re: CPU Fan Replacement

bbnj,

 

Put simply, case fans are generally "dumb fans" where they only spin at one speed regardless of temperature. CPU fans are generally "smart fans" that will adjust their speed based on the optimal CPU temperature. Additionally, they may mount different depending on the setup of your computer/specific fan.

 

As we do not sell the size CPU fan you are looking for, which we believe the Cooler Master FA08025M12LPA to be, we would be unable to advise a suitable replacement from BestBuy.com at this time. Please know, if we could, we gladly would!
