I am new to the forums here but I was wondering if maybe some of you could help me with an issue I've got...
My Dell XPS M1710 notebook idles at about 80 degrees celsius (Dell has replaced my video card 2 times, 3rd is on the way). Anyways, that is besides the point.
I recently purchased an NZXT Cryo LX cooling pad for my computer. It's got three 120x120x25mm fans (3 pins) with an adjustable thing on the side to change the temperature from high to low or whatever.

My question is as follows: I would like to replace the three fans with some MUCH better ones. Price is not an object so please don't complain about that! I also don't care about noise at all. Some cool ones I found were the Delta FFB1212EH fans - they will fit fine and all and put out 150+ CFM at 4000 RPM and they have a 3 pin option. However, the problem is that they EACH put out 18 watts. I don't know ANYTHING about electronics or cooling pads...
But would it be possible to install these three fans in the cooling pad without breaking anything and allowing the fans to run at full speed? Would the adjustable meter still work to change the speed from high to low?
Please help me fellas, I would really appreciate it. Thanks a bunch!
