    So ive only had my PSU for around 7 months and the fan is already wearing out meaning its not very lubricated so its making squeaking noises like a cricket which is driving me crazy. I don't want my computer to be damaged if I don't change it. But at the same time im not sure if theres a proper way to replace the fan/re-lubricate it. The PSU I have is the EV3A Supernova 850 g2. If you have any suggestions/or ideas that could help with he problem I would greatly appreciate if you commented them down below.

    I would suggest trying to clean it. There is often a lot of dust in compuers from the fans. I think there is a lot of tutorials on youtube :)

    Cleaning it isnt the problem. The problem is that my fan is wearing out. I think I solved it though. Going to buy a 140 mm fan. If you have any more ideas please post them down below

    Hi,

    You can change the fan but be careful when opening as there fragile and break easy.

    If your oversupply is only 7 months old I would suggest returning it. It is probably still on warranty.
