Yesterday Her Dell desktop's CPU fan started making grinding noises Dead | X| . I left it alone, kind of hoping it will behave today. Well, no, it got worse. Checked with Dell and her machine is 5 weeks out of warranty. They wanted to sell me a fan/heatsink combination for over $200! Yikes! Then I had a moment of inspiration. I had a much older Dell, which I had previously stripped of its hard drives, just gathering dust. I hauled its fan out and it was an exact match for her machine's fan.

So now Her machine is running silently with an old fan. I checked the factory label on the failed fan. It proudly boasted that it had some "hydrodynamic" bearing. Well, Mr. Dell, your hydrodynamic bearing went for a swim and drowned! Now I also know what to avoid if I ever have to buy another fan!
Get me coffee and no one gets hurt!
