Replacing the fan on RN524X

Was just wondering if anyone has replaced the fan on the 524x? I was thinking about replacing it with a noctua fan, I know some earlier RN models had a different pinout and required some modification but is that still the case with the 524?

There are some posts around in the community. Fact is there are no "wonders" on silent fans - these are mostly effect of lowered RPM, less air pressure, and much less airflow. The CPU can tend to become hot or overheat.
