    Unfortunately, the clips have different designs (top is to be modded, bottom is stock) and can't be inserted without problems into the new 4 pin connector.
    They don't lock in place and given their fragile nature, I am going for the soldering option.

    Do you happen to have a page / documentation at hand that I can consult?
    So far, it seems there is no central database for fans and I am struggling to find even basic model specifications.

    ADDA provides yearly catalogs in pdf form. There's no 90x90x25mm blower fans on their current list though, so guess you'd need to find an older catalog.

    Could also sail by their numbering scheme; 'H' designates both fans as 'High' speed. That doesn't necessarily mean they're using the exact same maximum rpms. Some same-sized 'High' models are designed for 10k, while others can run 14,000 rpm. Mind that it can't hurt if it's a bit off, it's just that the fan profile could be a bit askew, ceiling before it ought to or resulting in lower- or higher-than-expected temperatures.

    Why not just clip the wires themselves and solder the wires together.

    That is what I am going to do as soon as the new fan arrives :)
    I don't want to ruin a perfect replacement fan.
