Hi.. I was reading another users thread about his fans, and I'm wondering the same thing - sometimes my case fans make like a "labored" noise. Like they are trying to hard or something. Will greasing them up help any? If so, what should I use.

Thx

No, buy new fans!

Grease will make dust stick...bog 'em down pretty quickly in the short run.

Treat fans as disposable...once shot...replace. Eh you might be able to eek another few weeks or months out of them with a shot of powdered dry silicon, or cleaning with compressed air...but they'll surely fail soon.

Can a powersupply also make fans fail?
