Laptop Fans - besides cleaning, is it possible to get better RPM's with oiling or something?

Recommended Posts

MSI Raider GE75 - specifically the 10SE model (thanks Costco!)


Working well, but fans should be at 6000+ RPM on their 'full speed' mode.  Have cleaned them out a few times and get better temps/results and short of repasting (which I'm not inclined to do right now) is there anything I can do to get them back to their original 6000+ RPM's?  There are (2) fans one on each side and currently after last cleaning one is at 5500~ and the other at 5200~.  Am I doing it wrong? lol...



Swapping seems like huge project for little return investment . . .


Anyone have experience with this kinda thing?

If you can remove the fan blade from the pin it rests on you can try cleaning the pin. That would probably make a bigger difference than oil, but u could try adding a tiny bit of oil at that point if you want to.
