    CPU fan temp= 38
    GPU= 33c.

    tell me what the dimensions of the fan AB08812HX26DB00 - height, width, length (interested in the size of the casing, not the blades)

    What kind of circular material did you use for the fan intake?

    Hello Sir. Thanks for this information I am confused however is the MSI 16L3 the same as the MSI GT63 Titan by chance? Because your bottom cover panel sure looks the same as the GT63 Titan 15.6 inch laptop. I'm interested in this mod. So I can just add two Adda AB08812HX26DB00 in place of both my gpu and cpu fan? Do you have a link on where to buy the fans? Many thanks.

    Hey guys,

    I am interested in doing the fan mod and am currently sourcing the materials.
    As it turns out, I have received an AB08812HX26DF00 instead of the advertised AB08812HX26DB00.
    The connector is a 5-pin one, but I have got a different color code:
    red, black, white blue

    While peeking into the fan's casing, I was able to make out this writing on the PCB:

    Do you have any idea whether this fan model is compatible for my use case?
    Additionally, do you know whether this white wire is the same as the yellow wire in the stock fan?
    From what I can gather, this is the color coding:
    Color Function
    Black Ground
    Red +12V
    Yellow RPM from fan
    Blue PWM from mainboard

    The connector's look like this (the stock one is on the left, the fan to be modded on the right):

    Thank you very much for your assistance :)

    Yes, the yellow and white wire serve the same purpose. So if you swap the four wires from the 5-pin connector to that of the 4-pin then it'd do fine. The sequence would indeed be identical, save the different colour for the rpm signal's wire.

    If you're lucky then the metal clips have the same size and you can simply dis- and reconnect them by using a small screwdriver and bend back the plastic flaps a little bit. That way the clip can be removed without any hassle. But if the clips have a different size or shape then you'd need to solder (or send back the fan). For the diy option it makes sense to ask for a partial refund, seeing that you didn't get the exact item you've ordered.

    One thing you may want to check is whether both the 'F' and 'B' model have the same advertised maximum rpm speed; the ec firmware's fan speed table is designed around that value.
