H80 oily liquid on fan?

Recommended Posts

had this for about 2 months and was doing some case cleaning and notice both of the fans have this oily liquid on it. some of it has gotten on the rad. the rad is not leaking or anything definitely coming from the fans i think.

 

should i be worried?

This is pretty common. For some reason the fans that come bundled with the coolers were overly lubricated from the factory. It's just oil for the fan bearings. Once the excess oil is flung out, they will stop.

 

Lol ... I know you mean they will stop Lubricating ...

It's just they way you put it that makes it sound weird

 

I actually never came across situations like this but I can understand that with above average speed fans they like to ensure that al runs as smooth as posible

LOL yeah i guess it does sound a little funny. Oh well, it's early!

Yeah, it is pretty rare. But i would just wipe them off and watch them.

 

It's not going to shorten fan life or anything. No more than normal anyway.

 

Your right the oil will eventually stop lubricating as time goes by, dust builds up and the oil dries up...

 

I have seen people RMA them for that, but it's really a hassle for nothing if you know what i mean. And you can always go down that path if you want to anyway. Just use the link on the left to get started. It's entirely up to you

 

Cheers!
