Advice 2 : How to lubricate the power supply fan

When using the computer for a long time without upgrades and modernization, replacement of parts over time can be detected malfunction. Below, take a look at the sequence of actions for the lubrication of the fan (cooler) unit power.
How to lubricate the power supply fan
Instruction
1
First you need to open the casing of the system unit. For that end (if any) mounting screws, or detachable fastening. Then remove the cover. Unit power you can get from only one side, the other will interfere with the motherboard.
2
Then removed the unit power. It is usually fastened with four screws, which are unscrewed from the back side of the system unitand is supported on two curved plates of the hull.
3
To extract the unit power supply from the enclosure, disconnect the exhaust from it wires. Need to remove the connector from the motherboard, turn off hard (s) drives the actuator. All this is possible and not to do if you want to change the lubrication of the fansitting next to the system unit.
4
Next you need to remove the cover from the unit power supply. It is secured with four screws. Carefully remove cover so as not to damage the wires.
5
Unscrew the fan. He is also attached to the four screws on the cover of the unit power supply. Disconnect fan supply wire (either inside the unitor on the motherboard).

Advice 3 : How to connect the fan to the power supply

There are times that the fan stops spinning and cooling unit components power supply. It is not necessary to buy a new unit supply. Will need to replace the old fan. Replacing the cooler block power, can significantly extend the life of the unit and save on the purchase new. Although replacement cooler is not a very complicated procedure, but there are nuances.
How to connect the fan to the power supply
You will need
  • Computer, cooler, screwdriver
Instruction
1
First you need to disconnect and remove the unit 's power from the computer by opening the lid of his body. Disconnect all wires of the unit power from components of the system unit. Unscrew the mounting screws on the rear panel of the computer and remove the PSU from the case.
2
Now Unscrew the screws on the body of the unit power supply and open the lid. Then you need to disconnect a wire through which voltage is applied to the cooler power supply.

Here two variants are possible, depending on the unit model power supply. The first option. The fan is attached to the Board with a special plug. To turn off the fanand unit power , you just need to pull the wire itself.
4
If you do not see the mounting location of the fanand a special connector, so the wire is just soldered to the motherboard on the unit power. In such cases it is necessary to accurately cut the wire of the cooler at the point closer to the fan.
5
Now Unscrew the fan from the lid of the unit power supply. It is attached using four bolts. You need to pick up the cooler exactly the same size. The store of computer components you can do it without problems.
6
If you are in the unit of power is the socket connection (from which you removed the fan), just plug in the new. If you cut the wire, then a new cooler you need to solder. To do this, cut the wires on the new cooler. Next solder the wires that you cut in the block of power supply, to the wires, clipped to the fanE. then be sure to "insulate" the contacts.
7
