Default Re: Did anyone ever find a replacement for the 5800U's YSTech Blower?

oh, i maybe understand your question now. You want to replace the fan but not keep the stock copper in place. I do not know of anyone who has done that. I'm tempted but chicken so far. All the copper RAMsinks i see are tiny.

As far as the heatpipe being required, I'm not sure I understand. The copper heatsink on the stock 5800U was designed to have the heatpipe in place. Removing the heatpipe and fins will not allow the RAMs and GPU to remain cool enough; Remove the heatpipe and you need another form of additional cooling.
