Which oil to use to de-noise a noisy case fan. Tags: Light Cases Fan Components Google Search Last response: June 29, 2013 10:57 PM in Components Share Illuminate88 June 29, 2013 8:37:13 PM I have a noisy fan. After a quick google search and reading of some threads the response is to use Light Machine Oil. Searching for just that in amazon turns up Sewing Machine Oil. Also, I already have Air Tool Oil for my paintball gun. Is it necessary to buy the sewing machine oil or will my air tool oil suffice?

Any light oil should work; I just put a bit of teflon based oil that doesn't gum up in mine from a hardware store. ko888 June 29, 2013 10:57:30 PM Use a synthetic oil that doesn't leave a gummy residue when it evaporates.
