A rifle bearing fan is a fan with a rifle bearing holding the propeller. Rifle bearings are similar to sleeve bearings but have spiral-shaped grooves in them to help spread lubricant. The advantages are longer life and quieter operation. Lifespans of rifle bearing fans can approach those with ball bearings.

Rifle bearing fans are often used to cool computer cases.
