I found a system recently in which its gradually increasing unreliability (over a period of years, it's old enough to vote) may have had something to do with one fan needing oil, and another having a burned out winding (brown label, char beneath). This was a PC with 3 fans total. Case fan was ok, power supply fan stalled, cpu fan burned out. After one relube and one replace, its mean time to hang is 100 times better.

Unless you are running out of slots, or concerned about your power bill, fix the 750 _and_ get that 1080?
