X2! Except it would be hard to find a good repair shop that would tackle it.

Superglue normally will disolve many plastics rather than have a thermal reaction. It will react thermally with some kinds of fabric.

Btw, I'm not a chemist, either.

Yeah, I'm aware of PSU dangers. I would never deal with any electronic besides a cellphone or GPU.
But I doubt it's the fan. It rarely spins up, but I guess a span that doesn't spin that often is a hive for dust.

Anywho.. I do blast it with compressed air every other week to keep it clean.

I keep a magnetic filter on mine although it's mostly to filter out dropped screws and, maybe, mice and small birds.

Super glue won't adhere to most plastics but there is one made for them.

Erick you might give the PSU maker a shout about this vibration, it shouldn't have done it no matter what your cheap shop people said.

I've had superglue start a little fire when I got some onto some Kleenex tissue paper once, complete with some smoke. It was surprising, to say the least.

I know this as fact, that when mixed with cotton wool it creates a spontaneous combustion
