clean your rads / fans

Recommended Posts

obvious really.....however I recently got a new motherboard, Z390 Tomahawk and a i5 9600k, dog some testing I found temps a little higher than expected.....I diecided to check radiator, on removing the fan it was absoultely covered in dust, like a real thick layer.....anyhow all cleaned and put back......under load in p3d4 with ORBX, ASP4/ASCA etc now max out at 65, before clean was 79. can't beleive how much difference that made...

 

However I imagine you all clean your rigs regularly right?:D

I have the same motherboard but an i9 9700k. I clean the fans about twice a year or more if needed, therefore I do not have a build up of dust and my temps are fine no matter what I throw at it. Considering that I built my computer I take pride in looking after it.

yeah I normally am very good at keeping it clean but I guess life just got to hectic lately.....don't think it helps having a cat about the house either....
