What size fan is there in the Drobo FS?

rogerschooneveld - Réponse

What are the dimensions of the fan needed? I would like to order the fan before disassembling.

120mm 3 pin - I used the Noctua NF-A12x15 FLX. I had to use the screws that came with it instead of the original fixings as they didn’t fit the new fan. Also had to cut off the cable and solder the original one on as the connector is different. Red to red, black to black (and slide head shrink tubing over the join and then shrunk it by holding over steam from the kettle.
