    My Razer since I bought it was very hot and a week ago the fans make a pounding noise.
    I live in Honduras and I can not send my Razer because I do not have a way to do it and it would take a lot to come.
    Where can I buy the original or better ones?

    I have the same question. I've raised a support ticket but would be interested in an answer to this as I'd rather replace the fans myself. In my case it started with one fan making a buzzing noise, now both. Thanks in advance!

    Is that buzzing or rattling sound on start and when slow down, if yes nowaday gaming laptops use pwm fans they act like that.
    Unfortunately you’ve to send it in if you want the original parts, try to check Fans inside see if it’s full of dust or not, usually I’m dusting it every year but now on 10 months usage it was already quite dirty, it’s actually good imo, means intake works great. How high is cpu and gpu gaming temperature, I believe there is quite high ambient temperatures, so maybe you’ll need extra cooling management like cooling pad or stand to rising bottom areas to make better air intake, cpu undervolting may also help reducing the temperature.

    Yo like Joikansai said above, try dusting out your fans. Takes like 5 minutes and costs 5$ (for the can of compressed air) if you've got the screwdrivers needed to disassemble your laptop. If that still doesn't help you may need to replace the fans, as laptop fan bearings tend to die waay quicker than traditional desktop case fans. It won't be cheap to replace them, but it's an easy enough task as long as you know your way around the inside of a laptop.
