Thanks for a great guide! This is a great laptop with a really noisy cheep fan... It makes a high pitch sound even under the low load. Is it possible to make it run any better??

I have searched online for a replacement fan for the Yoga 710-14ikb but havent found any. Is it possible to use a fan for another model, perhaps the 14isk or 15ikb?
