Congrats if you've made it this far! Click the button below if you successfully replaced your fan! To reassemble your Wii U, follow these instructions in reverse order. Note that you will not be able to put the stickers back on that were covering the screws on the bottom cover of the Wii U — well, who really cares about a sticker covering a screw!?

Thank you all for viewing this guide. Keep on fixing!

Is it red = +5V, black = GND, grey = ¿PWM? - can't find original fan to buy [don't want to order from overseas] so trying to go with a 40mm 5V replacement, reusing the original connector.

No that doesn't seem right. If someone knows the pinout with some certainty, please do tell.

Here’s the fan pinout if someone’s going to splice in a new 40mm fan while reusing the original connector:

Black - Ground

Red - RPM signal

Grey - +5V

Ran across the pinout while splicing in a new 40mm fan because the original broke
