I've never heard anyone say "Don't do it", and I've personally done it.
I've repaired many gunked-up fans by dismantling, cleaning and oiling
them. So far so good.

If you're truly worried, you could maybe get graphite-based RC car
gearbox grease from a hobby shop and use that. Use sparingly. Very
expensive. I don't know if this really is a good solution though, as I
don't know what the problem is supposed to be.

GNOME runs (crawls) on less.

But I was really offering the P100s for those who are looking for boxes
to run ADSL connections through.
