    No obvious dust in system. Removed one of the fans and looked for cracked blades, etc., everything looks ok. But makes a racket when rotating around. Anything I can do, you know, like spray WD40 on the fan shaft??? :)

    Which fan ... Processor, Back Panel or Power supply ??
    Did you "over spin" it while blowing the dust out ??

    I’ve heard that you can peel the label off the shaft .. and put a drop on oil in it, but never tried it.
    I would not advise getting a can of WD40 anywhere near your computer…
    Or anything else you care about.
