They have the same physical dimensions so it should work

if it's small form factor, are you concerned about heat at all?

max airflow ratings on the new one as compared to the current one is
54 m³ / h vs. 73 m³ / h

it's quieter, but it's also running at half the RPM. granted while at half RPM, it's still pushing a good amount of air, especially how quiet it is (40db vs 17db).

just thought i'd mention it.

Before replacing your fan have check whether there is dust accumulated near it?

Cooling is one of the most important issues that PC users face. Perhaps, in any modern building there are seats for several fans. Invisible fighters for maintaining the optimal temperature inside the case are rarely the subject of discussion, although the role of best case fans is difficult to overestimate.

My laptop's fan has been making too much noise lately. Is it because it is time to replace it with the new one or am I using my laptop too much. It is a 4 years old HP laptop.
