Default What oil to use when peeling back lable on fan

I have decided to peel back the lable on my motherboard/chipset fan at an attempt to make it spin again. Is there any prefrence to what kind you should use, do some work better than others? This among other factors have been keeping me from TF lately.

wd40 is best for fans , but theres no need to peel off the label. you need to spray on the fan's engine (which is in the middle just above the propello bit under the label and if youll pull the propello bit down it will get bit wider) anyway use a bit dont put too much

edit: forgot to mention, zalman have some nice fanless chipset coolers

Yes thanks I'll be looking for that then hope I can find some. That only leaves me with removing the top mesh frame which has been giving me problems for weeks!!! >.< My support for ASUS is dwindling


Thanks



edit: I've looked into them but with my video card being somewhat over the motherboard fan it will not fit. I am also thinking of calling ASUS for those free replacement fans they have been giving out. Can't argue with a free product.
