My System Specs

Default Corsair 1000HX fan going

so the fan on my Corsair PSU is going. Is there any way that I could swamp it with a regular 120mm fan or is it more specific than that ? Am I SOL ?

Thanks

The fan is the same form factor but the connector will be different. I had to do this recently on a different PSU, I just snipped the connector and like 3 inches of cable off the dead fan and the new fan's connector, then soldered the old connector onto the new fan. Easy peasy.

I took it apart and dropped some oil in the fan. It's doing better now . It's an old psu so when the fan goes I'll take it out and replace it with something new.
