Yes, I can buy cheap replacement fans on eBay, but it would take forever for them to get here and who knows how long they will last. And if I were to buy high-quality fans, that would probably cost more than what the video card and the motherboard these came out of are worth.

So sometimes you have to work with what you have on hand and do your best to fix it right.
Oh yes Momaka , sometimes you have to work with what you have on hand and do your best to fix it right , but here , it seems it is the most busy season of all seasons my friend . I'm doing my best to keep honesty in repair's time delivery .. But not much sad , money is flowing good , lol .

By the way , which kind of Oil you use Momaka ? , any brands , labels ?

I haven't done any major maintenance to my fan aside from sweeping off the dust in it. What I do is keep it from exceeding its maximum performance, and if I have to do so, I also keep it cool as much as possible there are some background running apps that can be closed for you to maximize the efficiency of your pc.
