Case fan for the XPS 8100?

Hi, 

Unfortunately, the original case fan (the one on the back) for the XPS 8100 is broken so I need a new one. I've heard people saying that only the OEM fans work but I'm not too sure about this... In short, my questions are: 

- Are the OEM ones the only ones that work or are there other models that fit the required specifications (what are they?)? 
- If so: which fan would you advise me to buy? 

Thanks in advance!

Hi dan0di9,

Just Google "XPS 8100 case fan". About $9.

Thanks for your replies!

Just to be sure: are you guys saying that I'll need to buy the OEM fan?

Re: Case fan for the XPS 8100?

Hmm... my broken case fan is a Foxconn PVA092G12M, which complies with other people that have a XPS 8100. Are you sure the Sunon fan will work?

At least I hope I'll have different models to choose from because the cheapest PVA092G12M I've been able to find is $25. This is mainly shipping because I live in the Netherlands.

It really feels like a waste to spend $25 on a stock case fan 😕

EDIT

Oh, lazy me, I see that the XPS 8100 is listed in the description. Out of curiosity, are there any more models that would be compatible?

EDIT 2

Perhaps I was overcomplicating things... There are different brands I found but they all share the Dell PN X755M. Using this PN, I found this on ebay:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Dell-Vostro-200-400-Inspiron-530-531-Tower-Cooling-Fan-X755M-/360392597313#h...

This is the cheapest product I was able to find (shipping internationally). What do you think?

Re: Case fan for the XPS 8100?

I am positive that the SUNON part will work because of the DELL X755M on the label. emoticon.Stickouttongue.title

This part works with

Inspiron 530, 400, 531, 546, 545, 560, 580, Dell Vostro 200, 570, and Studio XPS 8100 Desktop , 537, 535

The Foxconn number is also valid for X755M

Take care that the fan that costs $5.95 doesn't have $14 shipping cost added.

Right, so do you think the product I linked will be OK?

As for the shipping costs: I wish it would be more in balance but unfortunately there's little I can do about it.. 🙂
