So I cleaned my computer today, for at least the 9th time in 2 years.

I know my room is always collecting an unreasonable amount of dust, you literally can spend 2.5 hours cleaning everything and have it all be dusty again two days later.

So this picture wasn't the surprise:

Nah, I got that easily cleaned out with two fresh cans of pressurized air.

What DID surprise me though was this.

WAIT WAIT WAIT WAIT, hold the presses. My computer... HAS A FOURTH FAN!?!!! I never noticed this fan before! :omfg:


I Am Stupid (sometimes) by UltraTheHedgetoaster


Well, that explains why cleaning the computer never fixed the problem. Because I didn't clean the fan I actually would have NEEDED to clean to fix it. :doh:

Now I feel really stupid for assuming the three fans I could see from the outside were the only ones the computer had, and for never turning the PC upside down.
...What? It's what I actually had to do in order to clean it, I couldn't have reached it overwise. Had to be careful that the PC didn't fall over, since it wasn't meant to be turned upside-down.




See this little dust-devil in the upper right corner there?
(This was after quite some cleaning, mind you.)

Since I never cleaned this part of the computer, it's been growing for three years. It didn't even come out with pressurized air, nor with cotton sticks.

Only once a paint-brush, tweezers, and some VERY tentative application of a vaccuum cleaner (while holding down the fan to prevent it from spinning, thus inducing electricity and damaging it) got involved, did it FINALLY yield, and it only took over AN HOUR to get it out.


THIS CAME OUT OF MY GRAPHICS CARD COOLING FAN:

...And guess what?

graphics card at 45C (dust problem solved) by UltraTheHedgetoaster

That fixed it! The graphics card now runs smooth at 45 - 50°C instead of 88°C, and the computer is quieter than even the birds outside! :wow:
(I have, at all times, ~2500 tabs open in Firefox, mind you.)

All in all, an exciting ~6+ hour long adventure, with a great pay-off. :nod:

And who knows? Maybe, just maybe, after 2 years of not being able to, I might get to play PC-games again?

Well, okay, let's not get too confident just yet.

Uhhhhhh... This is always awkward to point out, but I actually put it in one of my "Temporary Collections", not my favourites. ^^;

I literally put the fact it's "not part of my favourites" in the title to avoid confusion. Which is still doesn't, sometimes.
:iconpinkieembarrasedplz:


Basically, my backlogs for things to "get back to", for one reason or another. In your case, I was going to write a comment, that's why I put it there as a reminder. ;)

Hang on a moment... :plotting:
