    I purchased this laptop used so I don't know which reseller to contact.

    The CPU fan sounds like it has a bearing or something beginning to fail in it. Not all the time but sporadically it will go from fairly quiet to making a hellacious grinding noise

    When it does that I Fn +1 it until the CPU temp drops and then the fan falls silent and remains silent for several days until it starts making the sound again.

    It started up tonight while I was working on a research paper and was a distraction for everyone in the room.

    Looking online, I am having hard time finding a specific replacement fan for this model.

    Could anyone point me to the right direction for a US distributor for this model CPU fan?

    Ask your reseller about purchasing a replacement CPU fan.

    I should have mentioned but I am also open to a higher speed , quieter non-exact replacement fan if one exists

    Thank you for your help

    Ah I see.

    Well according to the NotebookCheck review of your unit (Clevo P65xHS-G), the part number for your CPU fan is DFS501105FR0T:

    You can this find this part easily on eBay or AliExpress for a few bucks, the only issue is it takes a couple weeks for shipping as they're all from China.

    Edit: Amazon has it too, it might ship faster from them.

    Make sure you get the one for Clevo, not Toshiba, as they have different mounting hole locations.

    Thank you for the help, guys

    I took the back off of the laptop last night and ended up with almost the same picture you were able to find for me.

    I was googling "replacement cpu fan for Clevo 650 HS-G" and was striking out. Regardless of how many different ways I reworded the same thing

    Once I googled for the string of numbers on the fan tag itself, I was able to find a few replacements on Alliexpress and Amazon.

    I went ahead and purchased 2 off of Amazon so I'll have a backup replacement for later on down the road but the expected delivery for them is December 23rd though January 17th so I reckon it's being shipped straight from China. There were no Prime options available, lol

    And they were dirt-cheap. I believe both of them shipped ended up being less than $20 USD

    But again, I appreciate yall helping me settle this fan issue. Not being able to locate a specific replacement using my approach was leaving me with a sad heart.

    Integrated heatsink fan units can be sold together often but that does become more expensive.

    Reishi if you're still monitoring this topic, I'm having a similar problem, and already got the fan part, but I hit a snag due to not knowing if I have to take the heatsink off completely [which is combined, different from my old NP8130 where the fans/heatsinks for the GPU and CPU were seperated] or not, so I stopped and just put it back together for now without replacing the fan, but I really need to figure this out soon. What should I do here? o.o

    You should be able to remove the CPU fan without needing to remove the heatsink.
