How to lubricate fans with difficult-to-reach oil reservoirs?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Specifically, Thermalright Ty-140, Phanteks ph-f140TS, and MSI Twin Frozr III. The Thermalrights have been "updated" so the reservoir isn't accessible behind the sticker any more. How would I go about opening these suckers? I'm not in a position to be paying £10 for a new fan every time one starts rattling, which happens all the time with fluid bearing fans. Do I just drill and hope for the best, or is there a less potentially fruitless and catastrophic method of finding the reservoir? Does anyone have experience with these exact fans?

Those fans have Fluid Dynamic Bearings. There is no way to lubricate them nor do you need to. Unlike sleeve bearings their lubrication is sealed. If you drill a hole in it, all you are going to do is ruin your fan.
