    Laptop dead fan

    I recently got a Clevo P870TM1 with a dead cpu fan and been trying to fix it for a while. I already tried the port with another fan and it worked so the problem is the fan itself. The fan looks good, it's not stuck or anything, spins fast if I move it myself. What could be the problem or is...

    Can I Lubricate A Fluid Dynamic Bearing Fan?

    I've got an Aerocool DS 140mm fan with fluid dynamic bearings. I'm attempting to lubricate the bearing, bu when I took the sticker off there wasn't any cap to remove. Is it a sealed system or something? I uploaded a picture of the fan showing that it doesn't seem to have a cap.

    Lighting solution that fits in/replaces fans in case fan slots?

    As I rebuild my PC I realised I no longer need any case fans - apart from the (really silent) GPU and CPU fans I no longer need the 4+1 (small+top large) fans in my case - I only use SSDs and don't overclock so there is not much heat to push, I hate to always have to clean dust filters, they...
