    Default Internal Fan Upgrade

    Is this possible? To get a better internal cooling fan for your laptop?

    Doubt it, you can probably get replacements though.

    So an external cooling fan is the only option?

    I recommend a cooling pad like the Zalman NC-1000

    These aren't desktops.

    The fan that it comes with is the one you're stuck with. You can get a replacement like lawlz said, but you can't buy an aftermarket one that's gonna cool better like you can on desktops.

    With a lot of work, you can probably find a more powerful fan that will fit.
    But in the last laptop I had to fix (an old 2.8GHz Prescott), just rewiring the fan directly to the supply (5v in my case) was enough to cool that Prescott.

    Yes they are. And they're hot, exactly what you don't want in a laptop.
