    u can oil the fans by taking the small sticker of the fan, and put a drop of veg oil in it. only a little, this should lube it.

    huh? it sure seems a lot of people on this forum can't express themselves clearly.
    take a minute to read what you've typed before posting.

    if it's a fan making a grinding noise just replace it. they are cheap...

    slowing down fan speed will quiet things a bit. but, be sure to monitor your CPU temperature.

    DO NOT use vegetable oil on your fan.

    Unless you are planning on eating it...
