  1. Have you ever actually replaced the fan in the SF-17?
  2. Thank you for your offer to help me out. The following is my situation for which i need help, I had posted it in the Notebook Cooling Forum, Posted on 18 December 2014 - 08:03 PM by MSwhip QUOTE I have the SF-17 and I am thinking to replace fan with the Silverstone Air Penetrator AP 181 C$15 currently. QUOTE from Silverstone on the AP-181: The design goal for Air Penetrator is to focus airflow into a column that can be channeled through various obstacles inside the modern computer case for more efficient cooling performance. Compared with traditional fans, where airflow spreads outward and further looses focus with resistance added (e.g. filters, fan guards, etc…), Air Penetrator fan’s unique blade and grille designs can create enough pressure to push air as far as 1 meter away with minimal fan speed and noise. 1200RPM 130CFM 34DBA in high airflow mode UNQUOTE According to the specs in the SF-17 sheet: Fan Speed 700 - 1200 RPM ± 15% Fan Airflow 35 - 70 CFM Fan Noise Level 16 - 21 dBA I have a couple of questions: 1. The AP 181 comes in a square case frame, is it compatible with the CM unit?. 2. Would the speed fan control in the SF-17 also control the fan of the AP 181 with the same incremental motion? 3. Is 34 dBA noticeably noisy? 4. The fact that AP 181 moves the air like if it was a tunnel and with the strength to reach 1 metre, would it harm in any way the notebook when it invades it through the beehive air intake? I would appreciate your knowledgeable opinions Note: I would appreciate tutorial to disassemble the SF -17 to replace the fan. Anyone has ever seen a blueprint of the guts of the unit? Who manufactures the fan inside the SF-17 and what is the Model Number? Thank you kindly. UNQUOTE I need to resolve the case as I have the 180mm Silverstone 181 Air Penetrator Fan 181 in layaway. I found that the original fan provided in the SF-17 does not cool the laptop to a level I can feel comfortable with. I love the product versatile features (one of the few that has adjustable heights) with the one exception of the limited cooling capacity. (I have to admit that I am very finicky with inside temps, as with small load or even when idling the PSU is showing over 50º C by Speccy monitoring software) Thank you for taking time to assist me with this. Thank you again. Note: I have retired my previous(V70) icon which has been reserved for your use in this site and/or your social media account/s -if you want it-
  3. Thank you. By the way, I posted my request in the Notebook Cooling Forum, if you are staff with Cooler Master maybe you could help me out Notes: - No dutch automobile brands locally manufactured as yet, huh? - Maybe next time I will grab the Royal Philips one too. Seasonal Greetings to you and if you are still 23, I am 3 times your age Cheers !

  5. Thank you cool beans. You were exactly right.

  7. Thank you for your clarification. In fact I was looking for the forum that deals with laptop cooling pads(not mouse pads). I have some issues with the Cooler Master SF-17 unit. Now I am really confused then.
  8. I do not recognize the word, maybe it is because it might not exist. We do not need deformation of the language on a site like this one
