    What fan type/size is this?

    I've called Gateway tech support, checked system spec page on their support site, and searched the internet and cannt find any info. The only info on the fan itself is " DC 12V brushless". I'm looking to buy a quieter fan. Are the quieter fans less efficient?

    Image too big, loading very slowly. Also question doesn't sound clear.

    I don't see how it is a vague question. I am trying to find a quieter replacement fan, but I can't find out what size fan is in the laptop right now.

    Weird that the gateway support couldn't help you, they should know such things. As this is a laptop-fan it's hard to identify it, as this might be no standard fan (when it comes to form-factor)...that said: it's going to be tough to determine a replacement, especially one that will satisfy the cooling needs of your high-speed cpu...maybe you should check the label again for any information (serial-no. or anything) and messure the thing (diameter + height)...maybe we can find something then...

    That's exactly what I was afraid I was going to hear =/. I haven't seen a fan similar to this before. I will take some measurements and search that way later tonight if I can.
