Mmm...laptop + compressed air = 30*c less!

I figured my laptop was a little toasty whilst Folding so a teeny tiny spray of compressed air and we have temps nearly 30*c lower.

Anyone else having to give their hardware the ol' summer clean to keep temps down?

I've left the back off my laptop. It's on a stand so it's totally protected but it's helping with temps!

I probably need to do the same to my i7 rig. The room it's in is being remodeled. Just finished the drywall and it's a little dusty. I'll probably be painting next week then I'll start building a new desk. I think when I move everything I'll give the PC a good cleaning. My 470 has been hitting 80C lately while folding.

I cleaned my 8800 the other day and it was nasty. The temps are still really high. 84c full load can't be right for a card running at stock. I even re-applied thermal paste and that didn't help at all.

It worries me so I might need to consider rmaing it.

I think that's just because it's a single slot cooler.
