I saw somewhere on the forum "silicone spray" being mentioned in the context of the fan. Is this something that can be done to make the fan run "smoother"? I have a can of MANNOL silicone spray lying around.
Or did I completely misunderstand? Thanks in advance.

The efficiency of two screens equally sized with equal numbers if pixels are equal. The time spent by a 4:3 user complaining about 16:9 is proportional to the inefficiency working with a 16:9 display, therefore the amount of useful work extracted is equal.

The likelihood of the it getting on the axle shaft is very slim and in the process, you'll get it all over the inside of the fan housing, possibly giving dust something to stick to.
I prefer to remove the fan and where possible (not all fans simply lift off the axle), drop some oil on the shaft and clean out the housing while its open. Your computer will thank you.
