I got a one of those big zalman copper fin fans a year ago and I'm curious if there is any way to lubricate it. It spins at the same speed when i got it but it makes a small squeaking noise. You really don't notice it till you tune in to it, but once I start to hear it. It nags me like crazy.
Make sure that the fan blades are not being touched by a wire or a cable tie that can cause some noise. It is not worth it to try to lubricate this fan. The lubricant will be dispersed throughout the inside of the computer. If the noise is from a bearing, the damage is already done and the bearing will fail in time.
