GPU Fan w/ No Oil Cap on a ATI AIW X600 PRO PCI-e x16 Video Card.

The fan appears sealed w/ no cap & no sticker. How do I oil the whiner?

NOTE this is the second fan salvaged from a junk pile...


Would I be better off trying to find a PCI-e x1 Slot Card-n-Fan than a GUP Fan for s Shuttle XPC?

Hi :) 

Lol, whatever made you think a gpu fan could be oiled, its not a car :) 

All you can do is to blow it out with compressed air...

All the best Brett :)

Drill a hole & add a drop of oil?

NOTE: Those gpu fans are real hard to find in small towns...
