lol

how about some pictures of this liquid or something, like of the source of it would be helpful?

From what I understood, there's a crack on the fan's rotor? Or is there a crack on the heatpipes?

crack at fan rotor

the example of conductive oil was not so good maybe but some lubricants even without the components mentioned can conduct electricity in small amounts which in time can cause damage to sensitive components.

look here:http://www.pantherlubes.com/tl_13.html

crack is on rotor;i've cleaned before takin pict. the exterior my mistake it was full with oil; i have cleaned also th mobo and the VGA to recover something... but tested with the stock amd cooler

on the interior of the blade is visible the oil an also the crack

Hm... so the oil that was in the fan's motor came out and splattered everything.

Did you try cleaning the mess up, let it dry and boot your PC again?

Don't know if the warranty covers any of this. Cooler Master should be able to replace the fan though

I am sorry i am having a hard time believeing a fan that leaked out oils destroy a comp . now i do belive you on the fan losing its oil i had 8 of them do it on my machine as for it spraying the entire computer in side is a lil hard to swallow . that means that 1 fan must have had 2 - 3 ounces of oil in it . ( which is an absolute impossibility for em to hold that much oil ) . now air does contain moisture , and dust does collect on moisture , and some dust have metals in it . for someone to claim a fan destroyed my machine is a lil far fetched ........ sounds like a company dont want to rma products and decided to blame something else so they dont have to rma the product .... my suggestion is this . clean the parts ( dust em off ) all of them get ahold of the manufacturer rma dept . rma all the bad parts .

And please look at these guides i made up .. this will show you the internals of a fan . now tell me that a fan can hold that much oil in it for the beginning ....

yes is hard to believe also for me but a small drop in the right place make miracles...

i've cleaned after i've noticed all well believe me and till i've changed the cooler with this new one i hadn't any problems

the fans from your picture are not like this: http://www.coolermaster.com/products/pr ... =1&id=2535

and if someone has opened a fan like this can tell us what's inside

oil coming from the fan? that was the weirdest problem i ever seen. probably an error comes from the factory. losing a gpu card is the worst without warranty.

I destroyed a fan that came of a returned hyper TX2 to search for the oil:

There is defintly not enough oil in this particular fan to destroy anything.

you say that no oil is inside the cooler?

i've found small drops of it on mobo and gpu;the inside part of the blade from my picture show clearly the darker spots are due oil and this was spread to centrifugal forces en the exterior;my fault i didn't take a picture before cleaning...

on the dfi mobo the fan was horizontal blowing air up from down ; for me also is unbelievable the quant.of oil but it has a lot inside ;in 2-3 weeks has acted like a dust clue also you can see the difference between the inside and outside part of the blade.

is this crack a manufacture fault or not?

we're not cooler master tech to can say what and hoe much lubricant is inside ;i'll really like to see a comment from one.

also is possible that the crack was small and has grown in time due rotation who knows?
