    Fingers crossed...so far yes :) I'd forgotten just how quiet the fan can actually be. The one I removed was really clean...not a bit of dust on it, which surprised me. It feels solid so must have the absolute tiniest bit of play in it that caused the buzz.

    Make sure to clean it up once every few months to ensure the best life expectancy and quietness of the fan. There are reviews of users who complained about every single notebook products out there with noisy fans but guess what? All they needed to do is repaste and cleaning of the fan and vent.

    Hi there!
    Sorry it took me so long to answer back.
    What I meant was that my Zenbook 3 has never developed any weird fan sound.
    Glad I could help you with the part No and the dissassembly process.
    I've opened mine once, just to remove dust and see if there was a way to improve heat dissipation so that the fan would not be so active.
    I've got some heat pads to stick on the heat pipes so that they spread some heat over the bottom of the case but haven't tried them yet.
