I have a system with a boxed A10 5700 APU. Yesterday the system suddenly switched off. When I tried to restart, the system booted and then it switched off.

Opening the case, I saw the fan doesn't spin. So I need to replace it.

 

I'm going to install a no-brand fan just as a temporary solution.

Can you confirm any standard 60x60 fan fits?

 

Then I'm going to install a Noctua NF-A6x25 FLX:

Is it ok?

Any alternative suggestion?

 

Thanks!

Are you sure it's the fan that failed? It could be a more severe issue in the motherboard so that it no longer provides power for the fan. Usually motherboard speaker and/or led can tell if it's a cpu fan failure. And.. Noctua isn't a no-brand manufacturer, it probably makes the best fans of them all. Also.. replacing the fan of the stock heatsink is pointless, you might as well buy an aftermarket heatsink such as Coolermaster Hyper 212 or Corsair Hydro series.

You are right. I will check leds on M/B.

 

My question was also about right design of the fan. The original fan coming with the boxed APU seems to be a standard 60x60 fan.

Is it correct?

I replaced the fan and it works correctly.

 

The fan that came with the boxed APU is a CoolerMaster FA07015L12LPB:

CoolerMaster FA07015L12LPB Server Square Fan
