    Default ***Public Service Announcement***

    To the pc enthusiast community:
    Are your processor temps much higher than they should usually be? Have you been used to an idle temp of 26c, yet have one of 40c? Are your load temps constantly over 60c? What could be th cause of such a calamity? Dust! Not just dust in your case, but dust compacted in between the cooling fins of your heatsink! A vaccuum cleaner hose and can of compressed air will quickly remedy this problem, and have your cpu nice and chilly how it used to be, before the dust. See photo below of problem before being remedied.

    I was just posting what I found in my computer in a slightly creative way, to help all those who maybe aren't senior members. I'm sure there are a bunch of people who browse this board who aren't aware dust can hurt cooling that much. I didn't think it would have that profound of an effect...
