I have an ABIT IS7 motherboard with a fan that is making a ton of noise. I know for sure it is the fan, and no, it's not filled with dust or anything silly like that. My problem is that I don't know how to either replace the fan or fix it with some lubricant. If anyone knows what kind of fan I should replace it with that would be great. I've tried taking the fan off to lubricatre the shaft, but I can't seem to get it off and I don't want to break it completely.

Any suggestions would be great. Thanks.

it requires more knowledge that what you have or you would have figured it out by yourself by now .you could ruin you cpu or your motherboard if you do it wrong .that as help full as i can be ,sorry . but maybe someone else can help you ,give more info like what type of processor and motherboard is in the computer .is Intel or amd .what socket type is it ,there a so many different ones

Once you open your cabinet,you need only a screw driver to take out your fan.Clean it if its dusty.And I dont think lubricating it will do any good.
