Default Damn fans!

My cooling fans are driving me nuts with their obnoxious squeaking. Assuming there is no way to lube them to shut them up, can anyone recommend a good aftermarket alternative to the stock fans? Am I better off sticking with stock ones?

Stock fans don't seem to be an issue around here. I would get an aftermarket set if it was cheaper, but that's the only reason I would go there...

If you can't find the source of the squeaking, I would just go with a used stock set. No need to go aftermarket for fans.

Source of squeeking is definitely the fans. Can the fan assembly be pulled out from underneath or do you have to do it topside?
