So my computer was powering off, eve was crashing. you know all the usual thermal symptoms. figured it was my ****ty computer case. so i went and got a HAF 932 Advanced, and a n Aerocool Touch 2000 fan/temp monitor. move the system into new case. power on - alarm! cpu fan not turning.
check it.. yeah it just feels sticky. there must be a way to fix this.
once you've done it once.. it takes just a few seconds to do again. the replacement lubricant i used is sewing machine oil. works like a champ.
