    My laptop fan has been driving me barmy (even barmier).
    So I was glad to see this article.However, not too keen on opening up my laptop (never), so this article would be useful for easily accessible fans, but not me ( :cry: )

    Great article though.I've found a way of quieting down my fan though, wahey :cheers

    See the other post about loud laptop fans.
