Also, what would I have to do if this was the case, do I have to send back the entire cooler to Noctua, or just the fan?
Take the fan out, clean the yellow blobs, re-install.
It will come back as what is happening is the bearing is failing and thus causing the oil to come out and spray against the housing.
I'd send those pictures to Noctua and get the fan replaced as they shouldn't need the entire cooler.
