Someone used other than stock fan in iBook G4?
I once opened my ibook G4 1,33GHz 12" for replacing a Hard Drive and also swapped some parts from another identic model. The fans were different.
While minde had the same that can be seen in the parts section, the other had a bigger fan in it. That fan almost fills the hole of were the fan sits, while mine had about 3-5mm space arround it.
I swapped the fan, cause I thought it might cool better. It rattles, maybe oil would do it.
My question now actually is, whether there is someone of you who had replaced the stock one with a bigger and can tell me whether it cools better (I can't tell, because I do not know what the new HDD adds to the heat).
Thanks very much
Is this a good question?
