If it get's dusty that quickly you need to fix the problem, not the symptom. Find out where all of the dust is coming from and fix that so the room isn't so dusty. Cleaning the filters is the symptom, not the problem.

People... I think corn oil lasts longer as a lubricant than WD40. I use WD40 to dissolve stubborn road asphalt stains on my car. Throw WD40 into the fan and you will hear a difference sure but do that with water instead and you will also hear a difference. Because of WD40's ability to dissolve petroleum based products, the lubricating properties of WD40 are minimal and short lived. It's a quick lubrication if needed in an emergency but for long term, forget it. Ever clean a tool with it? It is nice and slippery just after you clean it but leave the tool in the tool box for a week and then pick it up and it is bone dry. That's what will eventually happen inside your fan.
3-in 1 is okay as long as you don't use the Penetrating version. White lithium is good. I've taken fans apart and lubed them with white lithium and silicon brake grease numerous times and it works great, but it's a lot more work. Basically what you are looking for is any medium viscosity liquid lubricant that has minimal penetrating properties. That's why Marvel Mystery Oil doesn't work very well and why sprays don't work very well. If you only want to pop the cap off and drop a few drops of lube in then things like Rem Oil, Fishing Reel Lube, Sewing Machine Lube, Light Machine Oil, NON Penetrating 3-in-1 Oil, Liquid Wrench Multi Purpose Super Lube, or similar FROM A BOTTLE would be your best bet.

Lithium Grease works well, but the spray doesn't work it's way down into the bearing surface without taking the fan apart like an oil will.

Cooking oils loose their viscosity when heated so they make a poor lubricant for bearings. They would get you through a few days in an emergency just like a spray would, but they aren't long term solutions. Once you use them you would need to do a complete teardown, cleanup, re-lubrication, then re-assemble the fan for long term reliability.

Essentially you are looking for something with the viscosity of 10w to 30w motor oil. Actual motor oil works quite well as long as it's SINGLE weight (not multi-weight like 5w30 etc.). But to use it easily you would need to use an eye dropper or you will make more of a mess than it's worth. Many of the lubes mentioned above are essentially 10w motor oil without all of the additives.

Totally false. The problems with using air compressors are possible moisture buildup spraying on the components, oil spraying on the components, and too high of pressure possibly damaging components. Air compressors need to be used with caution. that small compressor that was posted previously works quite well though as it doesn't suffer from any of these problems.

So I am in a great mood. The power went off about 30 minutes ago and so I decided to dust my computer. Take off the side panel and do some cable managment and then decide to futz around with my side fan. Now this fan had been making noise for quite a while so I played around with the scews a bit and thought nothing of it.

Then the power came back on and low and behold, its silent. So I am pretty happy right now xD.

Nice when things work like that ain't it.

Could have thought of a few other things I could do instead while in the dark like that... but then fixing fans is cool... yeah... that way no more little Kahbrohnnie's or Kahbronnettes running around!

Just kidding bro... So, it seemed to have been the screws, huh? Like my best friend has always said, "When something isn't working properly, start with the basic and easiest stuff first." - Never fails...

Hows my new cable management?

Hmmm you shoud try to route everything possible behind the MoBo.

Otherwise not TOO bad.

Still can't believe you went native on us though Yogi. ...

Shame on you!! j/k.

The 800D is one of the cases I was looking at for my build. Shame it was out of my budget. Great for water cooling...
