hi this new fan mounting was about 5 months ago.. these are the latest readings..
ambient temperature around 34 deg C
should i purchase a new CPU cabin with better airflow setup(front rear and top fans)? I don't have a blower.. or dryer..
so. cleaned it as much as i could... Its a strange thing that.. my CPU used to be cooler and more silent when there was actually lot of dust
. dunno why.. and what is this thermal compound u mentioned.. (forgive me i don't have an idea
about it). does it have something to do with the processor or?
