Time to get out the vacuum

Recommended Posts

It is long over due for my latest IB April build.  Brought the machine out of its hole and discovered that a major cleaning of over 120 fan blades was in order.  Holy man it took a 1inch paint brush, some Amour All (I like my blades slick) and a discarded toothbrush and a good vacuum but I got all of the fan blades (and 2 case filters) clean.  It took about an hour but the result was about 5-10c better cooling.  A project to be sure but well worth it.


Get on it :).
