Come on Bill, that's half the fun with PCs. Every six months you take them apart and clean them out. It's exiciting, especially if you own long haired dogs; you develop quite a kit of Q-tips, brushes, vacuums and cleaners. It brings me back to the days when, every 6 months, my dad would disassemble our B/W TV, clean the dust build up off of the face of the tube and then lube the mechanical tuner. It was like a new TV when he finished!

To Hoyt_Stearns, Acknowledged your unsatisfactary on the no-ball bearing fan, I wonder the price of that fan you dissembled. Have you ever know the manufacture cost of it? Please c.f. following news. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/china-business/7773011/A-look-inside-the-Foxconn-suicide-factory.html

As an ancillary comment: beware fans made in China that say "Ball Bearing". I dismantled a failed one and there wasn't a ball to be found :-( .
