    Recently the CPU fan in my P34WV5 started making a faint clickly like sound. I opened it up and cleaned it out, but it didn't help. From google searching, it might be that I need to lube my fan? But its not clear how to do it, what to use, and it might involve drilling a hole in my fan which I don't have the tools for. Does anyone have any other suggestions on what I can try? Or alternatively, I know some people on this forum have bought broken P34 for certain parts/the case. If anyone can sell me the left CPU fan, that would be great too.

    If you diassemble the heatsink you should be able to check on the fan stickers what the partnumbers are. Look for those on ebay and aliexpress. 9 out of 10 times you can find a replacement there for not too much money.

    I did, but it seems like the part number is for a variety of fan case shapes. The closest I could find is a GPU fan on ebay uk https://www.ebay.ie/itm/Gigabyte-14-P34-GPU-Cooling-Fan-DFS481305MC0T-/253225865048

    When I search what I think is the part number DFS481305MC0T, I get a ton of hits for random laptop fans that have different shaped fan casings, but if I add gigabyte to it, or search with some of the other numbers on the fan, I don't get any results.
