Heatsink Dust - Pics


Recommended Posts

Well I noticed that my CPU was about 10 degrees C hotter then when i first installed my SP-97 and Tornado...



Then I decided to Remove the heatsink, reapply paste, and remove all dust.


I took the fan off of my heatsink and found this.

Literally, I'm not exagerating, a quarter of an inch thick dust.


So I clean it and redo the paste, then i get this...



I am Happy now. What do you think?

I think you need to clean it a *little* more often. Do you have that thing on the floor? Computers like to suck in Dust bunnies and hair.



Yeah, it's about 6 inches off of the ground. I think the 119CFM is what made it build up so fast.



Yeah i did clean the whole case.
