In a nutshell: iFixit stocks nearly two dozen Steam Deck components including interchangeable backplates, bumper and trigger blocks, speakers and interchangeable displays. While building your own console from scratch isn’t enough, iFixit has most of the parts that can wear out over time.

Valve partner with teardown specialist iFixit earlier this year to offer a variety of replacement parts for their Steam Deck handheld game console. The inventory of high demand components like the fan replacement kit was very limited early on, but it looks like the issue has finally subsided.

iFixit received only 100 Steam Deck fan kits last month and according to edgewhich sold out in the blink of an eye. $29.99 bundle that includes a new Steam Deck Fan and all the necessary tools to complete the replacement are now back in stock and ready to ship as of this writing.

Another hot item back in stock is Steam deck battery replacement kit. It would be a little frustrating if you already had to replace the battery in your new Steam deck, but we’re still glad the option exists. It will cost you $94.99.

Valve announced last month that more than double Steam Deck shipments are moving forward. The quick check for expected booking availability for new booking holders is still listed at or after October 2022, which has not changed from before the announcement.

We also learned that Valve is now shipping some models with slower solid state drives than originally promised. According to the company, there is no difference between x2 and x4 SSDs in OS performance, load times, gaming performance, and in-game responsiveness.
