I have a Dimension 8200 with a Pentium 4 2.8 Gig processor. Need a
replacement for the fan that cools the processor -- any suggestions?

Thanks!
Jim

Jim,

The cooling fan affixed to the back of the Dell chassis has a proprietary 3-pin
connector. At the $14.95 price Dell Parts (tel: 1800-357-3355) charges for a
replacement, why mess around? What you will receive is an entire assembly
consisting of fan, mounting bracket and green shroud.

Open up the case of your 8200 and look for the part number on the green shroud.
It will be something like "CN-0D1592-70821-44E-A0KB". The part number to order
in this case would be "D1592". Shipping via slow Airborne Express is free, or
you can pay another $6.95 for priority shipping. Add sales tax for the state
where you live.

The 8200 ought to use the same fan assembly as the later Dell 8000 series boxes.
If Dell Parts does not have the part for your 8200 and they cannot
cross-reference it to a newer compatible part, order the D1592. The plastic is
different, but the fan is the same, and all you really need is the fan... Ben

Call Dell and ask for spare parts. If you use other than an OEM fan, you'll
have to live with a "fan failure" bootup error each time you start the
system.

Edward,
Does that happen with all replacement fans for Dell Computers. I'm looking
into replacing my noisy Dell 8300 CPU fan with one from Zalman which is
supposed to be much quieter. Would not want to have that "fan failure"
message on each bootup.

The typical Dell cooling fan attached to the back of a Dell chassis has a
Dell-proprietary 3-pin connector to the motherboard. The "fan failure" bootup
error is displayed by the Dell BIOS if it does not sense enough current flowing
from the motherboard connector. If you don't want to deal with the error
message and still use a Zalman fan, be prepared to graft the Dell connector onto
the Zalman fan, do a little bit of soldering and use some electrical tape.
Also, be extra careful removing the Dell fan from the four rubber grommets which
hold the fan onto its plastic adapter and dampen the vibration caused by the
fan.

Or maybe Zalman or some other aftermarket fan manufacturer has a fan with a
connector compatible with Dell? ... Ben Myers

Are you sure that is how the sensing works? I ask because I have read
discussions about fan RPM monitoring, and these lead me to believe that
many fans drive the third, RPM sense wire with digital pulses, with one or
more pulses per fan revolution. The period of those pulses is measured
via an LM79 or whatever, and if it is too long (indicating low or no RPM),
appropriate action is taken.

Yep, Dell managed to frag the aftermarket fan folks. The older Dell
units had the standard 3 pin connector and sensing logic. Aftermarket
"quiet-fans" would work just fine. Some of the newer Dell motherboards
have a proprietary connector (also 3 pin - different plug shape) and
different sensing logic. If you trade connectors (needle nose pliers
and a pin to release each wire) the fan will work but the BIOS will
burp at you. The aftermarket vendors have not yet caught on... I just
had a conversation with a sales person from a company that sells ultra
quiet fans and he had no clue to what I was asking. In time...

FYI,
I have a SilenX fan (the quietest I've ever (not) heard) connected to the
motherboard on my 8300 (switched out the connector as described below), and
I get no bootup error message. Also have added two more (one Silenx and on
Papst) fans to assist with cooling, both connected to the power supply.
Ultra quiet now, even when gaming, and cooler than before when it had the
single loud Datech fan.

Thanks Gajejean!

I'm ordering today. I will post back with results for the fan selected
and a new Dell 4600 p4/2.8ghz/800mhz fsb/HT.

this should be a replaceable 4pin replacement fan Not 3 pin
4:17:36 PM Customer jIM
it is a specific DELL part and cannot be replaced by third party fan. why would they do this?

if it didnt sent info back i could probably just aftermarket a fix but this is a DELL specific part
4:21:33 PM Customer jIM
Shurly you have heard of this noise issue and failure with the Dimension computer.
