Upgrading the fans in a 2821

Hi All,

This is my first post on here, so excuse me if it is in the wrong area.

Basically I run 3 voice gateways on 2821 routers. In two of my routers I've had fan failures, one router has had two fans die and one has had just the one.

I was going to buy the offical Cisco fan replacement kit but then I thought with such as high failure rate I'd rather buy something else and better guarentee the service to my call centres.

So, what i'm asking is:

- Is there any reason why I cannot procure a standard 80mm 12V fan with a better rating (cooling and reliability) and install this in my 2821's?

I understand this may invalidate any warranties but mine have long expired.

Any advice or input appreciated.

Andy

  If you aren't worried about support  then there is no reason you couldn't as long as they are the same size and have the exact same draw as the ones that come out .
