    Lubricating CPU fans is not generally a good idea unless you can get your hands on very fine clock oil.

    I use radio controlled car oil and it works extremely well. 2 of my fans are now over 6 years old and are working well and quietly right now.

    I like the idea of the graphics paste tho - you can still get that in the UK I think.
