I replaced my AMD Stock fan with a Cooler Master TX3, but still its noisy(Not as much) but here is a constant irritating buzz.

Am I overexpecting this or are these things supposed to make some noise?

Oiling or any home remedy i should be going about ?


P.S. I have tried stopping all other fans, only this one is making noise.

I do not want to spend a fortune on Fans, id rather invest it on GPUs

Do not oil your fan unless you intend to oil it periodically the rest of your life.
Thankfully, the fan looks like it is a regular box fan (well, a nice high airflow box fan) screwed onto the cooler. Go find yourself a nice low rpm 4pin fan of the same size and just swap the fans. Nice and simple :) 
Before you do that though, look into your BIOS and see what your fans are set to. When I installed my new mobo yesterday it was automatically set to try and keep the cpu at 45*c, and a minimum of level 8 of 10 for the fan speed, which is ridiculously high for all the copper I have on it. Changing it to level 1 for the default speed, and to only increase that after hitting 55*c helped quiet it down. When I push the proc it still speeds up the fan as needed, but if I am browsing the internet or something simple then it stays silent.
If that dosnt work, then it may be time to try a different fan or cooler.
