    Would you guys be willing to measure the diameter of those fans as well as provide their Dell Part Number. I think this thread would benefit from making a list of possible fans that may be used. When I say "diameter" I am referring to the diameter of the actual fan, and not the fan casing. This means that the case would have to be opened in order to measure the fan.

    I will go first:

    1) Alienware M15x CPU Fan (DP/N PR2H1)[AVC Stock] : 5.5 cm diameter/5.50 CFM/2.5 watts

    2) Alienware M15x CPU Fan (DP/N ?????)[Delta Stock] : 5.5 cm diameter/5.50 CFM/2.5 watts

    3) Alienware M15x GPU Fan (DP/N 074W61)[AVC Stock] : 5.5 cm diameter/7.80 CFM/2.5 watts

    4) Alienware M17x R2 CPU Fan (DP/N 0U012M)[AVC Stock] : 6.5 cm diameter/11.2 CFM/2.5 watts

    For you guys that don't want to mod your fans, apparently the heatsink + fan combo came in 2 different versions. Any system that did not ship with the 920XM from factory cam with the 5.0cfm fan. systems that came with the 920XM shipped with a 7.7cfm fan. Just purchased one from here. For 5$, hard not to do it for a plug and play upgrade.

    I have AVC fan which one is 5.5cfm and this fans spins up to 4600rpm as 7.7cfm Delta fans do.
    So, where is the difference?

    They refunded and didn't ask for them back. Probably because it would cost them money to return them.

    I ordered the 10.4 CFM fan from the m14x R2 for my y510p model number
    0XN0G5

    I culdnt risk the larger m17x R4 GPU fan, as its slightly larger I believe
