View Full Version : ASUS ROG G751J - CPU Fan "rattling" noise at low speed, how to replace myself?

A year passed since I bought my first ROG and I starting to have a problem with left fan ( from what I googled its CPU fan ).

Fan started to give "rattling" noise, on the low performance ( lowest speed ). I do plan to disassembly it for a first time and do general clean which is neccessary after 1 year of constant usage.

However I almost certain that the problem is not due dirt, but a faulty fan. And there is a question, is it possible to buy and replace this fan by myself ? I bought ROG via ebay and I do not own any warranty.

Or maybe Im wrong and some fan oiling will solve the problem? Thanks.

( I hope its a correct section for this question, however if not - please move it ).

It probably just needs a drop or two of light grade sewing machine oil to quiet it.

Try and blow out some dust with a can of air.
Electronic stores sell the stuff... other stores too.
Listen if there is any chance.
