You asked about Noctua fans, they are definitely your best bet for ultra quiet/reliable fans. I’m not sure if they make them small enough for the laptop though.
And in colours other than brown ;)
But seriously, laptop fans are usually a bespoke thing tightly integrated with the custom heatsinks.
Thanks for your input both of you, I plan to open one of my Yeeloongs and evaluate the possibility. This will probably lead to another post with pictures of the internals ;)
Is that the same Yeeloong model what Stallman used in the past?
(He uses an libreboot-ed Thinkpad X200 now)
Indeed, it’s the same model. I’m proud to be running OpenBSD on hardware which has been granted the Stallman seal of approval :-)

This feels ironic for some reason or another.
