    I do plan to replace the 19-blades fan with the one from HP Pavilion All in One PC 24-XA.
    Seems really powerful and the dimensions seem to match those of the original one:

    I hope it would lower couple of degrees more. What do you think?

    Here are the two types of fans I've been using so far, waiting for the third one to arrive:

    From zBook 17 G2:

    the one from Pavilion All in One PC 24-XA I am waiting for:

    Which one between second and third seems more powerful to you?
    All are DC5V, the first and second are rated 0,5A, the third one - 1.3A

    @mirage_bg, you'll have to power them up and see (in the actual location/housing they'll be used in). Don't let looks deceive you, let the actual results guide your progress. ;)

    The difference between the first and second is 2C in favor to the one from zBook 17, the big question is if it’s worth the hassle to cut and arrange the third one...but may be I will try it:)

    Some people also added foil tape to extend the blades just a bit more

    Some people tape tiny pieces of aluminium tape(used for duct work) on the tips of each blade, same height, and extending like 1-2mm outside the fan blade, to make the fan blade longer.

    @mirage_bg (or anyone else that might know) quick question in regards to your 1070 upgrade with dream color. So all the posts I have seen so far state that in order to use the pascal gpu’s you need a dreamcolor display. Is it the dream color display that enables the pascal to work or the color board/decoder board that normally comes with the dreamcolor display?

    What happens if you just add the decoder board to your existing FHD screen?

    I ask because the dreamcolor display is an LVDS display as well, so the signal from pascal card gets converted from edp to lvds via the decoder board.

    So would using the decoder card with the normal screen and pascal card work?

    Your 40pin FHD panel won’t work with the 50pin decoder board. The decoder board needs 50pin panel.
