I am thinking to buy a new cpu heatsink for my T420s due to overheating issues. Is possible to exchange the heatsink with the T430s?

Given that generally speaking tdp is dropping, whilst it might be a fit (I don't know if it is) it will probably be built to cope with a lower tdp and therefore not useful to you. a T410 might be a better option.

What symptoms do you have?

I have the "famous" overheating cpu with noisy fan issue. And therefore I am looking for a heatsink/fan that will stop the overheating issue. The reason why I am thinking of buying the T430s heatsink/fan is because I want to make sure that the overheating will be gone for good and not just buy a T420s heatsink/fan to see the same result as I have now.

The T420s´s cpu is soldered on, so maybe it would be possible to get the T430s´s cpu, which is included with the heatsink and put it in with the T420s.
