The better to lubricate coolers?

When installed in laptops or power supplies start to creak, knock and then stalled, what is best to lubricate them after cleaning?

The key word is better, because some people even use liquid WD-40 with a minimum oil content, and they also have everything perfectly the first time. Ie what kind of grease and what thickness gives your experience the longest service life before re-knocking of the cooler?

And they do not need to lubricate, because the broken bushing no oil to life will not return.
: I have over 5 years of work computer and 2 year work home microserver never never smeared coolers, only purged with compressed air. It is enough that the noise went almost to zero. And yet in all that time I only changed the cooler with the heatsink on the CPU, because of the regular radiator heat was so-so. And if you still coolers will squeak or knock - definitely in the trash, and shopping for a new. - valerie.Monahan61 commented on July 9th 19 at 11:08

Conventional engine oil, synthetic or mineral. In any case, not the vegetable (sunflower) :)

Use silicone oil PMS-200. About it somewhere in the Internet I read that is recommended for the lubrication of coolers.

if you find , you fiusername oil , pure synthetic , very use ,1.5 years is enough , if you do not find autoinatic , no worse , BUT if the cooler is more than 1.5 years and use a computer intensively , then immediately change , because age is not a joy : )

If the cooler on the plastic bearing, which an absolute majority, it is not necessary to lubricate. Throw, still bearing Stoch.

Since the question has not been marked answered, and just for the future, I will answer:
depending on the type of bearing lubrication is different. It is believed that the roller bearings (rolling and friction) lubricated with grease - lithol, PMS to 800 - 1000 grease; "sleeve" bearings (sliding) - liquid - engine oil, PMS 200 - 600.
