One of the fans in my 15" MBP was running kind of loud, so I took the computer apart and pulled out the offending fan. I tried pulling the fins off of the motor to lubricate the pin on which the fins rotate, but I broke the fins in doing so. I ordered a new set (both fans) off of ebay and I'll have them within the week. In the meantime, I've installed SMCfancontrol so I can ramp up the fan to 6200RPM until I get the new fans in there. I'm wondering if this is safe to do? Keep in mind the 9600M GT's in these machines are bound to fail. Running the fans at 6200RPM, the computer is actually 15ºF cooler than it was running at 2000RPM with two fans. Here's the broken fan: You can see where the pin joined the plastic, the plastic just broke.
