This odd goop that I think might be lubricant of some sort has gathered at the bottom of my fan and I'm a bit worried about it.
Does look like some of the lubricant from the Fan's bearing case leaked out.
There is no other place that oil could have come from. Even though it looks like a lot of oil from such a small bearing case. Inspect the fan base or middle where the Manufacturer's sticker is and see if you see any oily marks.
There are numerous Youtube videos that show how to add oil to the bearings which are located under the sticker in the middle of the fan. Possibly the sticker or bearing cap which seals the oil came loose.
CPU Fans are relatively cheap to purchase, if for some reason, you can't add oil to the Fan's bearings. If the CPU Cooler is still under Warranty then you can always RMA it and get a new fan.
I too have the same issue and I am beginning to think that ryzen wraith prism coolers that came with my 3700x or any 3700x and upward processor from AMD have excess bearing oil from the factory.
Mine is 2 weeks old btw.
Here I found a reddit article about it: https://www.reddit.com/r/Amd/comments/endg2k/why_does_my_wraith_prism_look_like_it_is_leaking/
And here is another guy that has the same issue: Whats going on with my wraithprism cooling?
Makes 4 of us.
I have cleaned it with some tissue and qtips with alcohol. Let's see if it comes back again.
Let's see if this happens again.
Any updates on yours? Many thanks
Alguno ha recibido alguna información adicional de esto?
Me pasa exactamente lo mismo. Y chispeo la tarjeta de video.
Yo ademas del aceite, creo estar teniendo altas temperaturas. Han chequeado eso?
Que hacer en estos casos?
No habla espanol me.
Yes i clean it and now it is gone. It has returned today but small amount.
They say it is excess oil from the fan bearing.
I will clean mine today and let you know when it returns.
