Some fans allow for you to add oil to the bearings.  If your card's fans allow it there may be a port underneath a sticker in the middle of the fan.

Also, you may wish to take the stock heatsink off and replace the thermal grease (TIM) and/or thermal pads if they are getting old and brittle.  Koolance sells quality thermal pads that I like to use when replacing them.
