Disclaimer: While many users have reported good results, Noctua can not verify and assumes no liability regarding the correctness of the information contained in such user reports, videos or tutorials. Noctua can generally give no guarantee that a certain fan will work with a specific third-party device because usually, there is no detailed specification regarding fan compatibility and control available for such devices. Please also note that fan compatibility and control can vary from model to model and even from revision to revision even if the devices stem from the same manufacturer. As a result, it is important to make sure that the information or guidelines you rely on when replacing your fans are applicable to your specific model as well as your specific hardware and firmware revision. Due to the possible issues listed above, Noctua recommends that only experienced users attempt to replace pre-installed fans in third party devices and that special care is exercised when handling sensitive components such as power supplies. Please note that since there are so many different devices and most of them lack detailed documentation for fan compatibility and control, Noctua customer support cannot assist you with compatibility issues when replacing pre-installed fans. Please contact your device manufacturer for any questions regarding aspects such as the device’s pin alignment or fan monitoring and control. The pin configuration of Noctua fans is detailed in this FAQ. Noctua can not be held responsible for any damage or losses that may occur when replacing fans in third party devices.
