Windows 7: Custom Computer at 70C While Gaming (Is it a bad thing?)

There has been a bit of dust build up. I try to clean out out every week or so but it might just be extra dusty in that picture. There should be no lack of fans. Beside components with fans there are four fans. Two on the front as intake (with filter screen), one on the rear as output, and one on the top as output. The gpu has two fans on it also.

OK, could not see the front fans or the top fan.

Is there a dust build-up behind the CPU cooler fan on the fins ?

Not really. I use a compressed air can when I clean the dust. It probably doesn't help that the house I am in is over 100 years old...so much dust.

Haha yes. I think I would like to get a new cooler anyways, could anyone suggest a good one that I could get from Best Buy (I have a gift card there).

May I also suggest getting some filters for your fans. That way you just take out the filters and wash them instead of having to blow out your rig every week.

There is a filter on the two intake fans on the front of my case. Would I need ones for the exhaust fans? To me that kinda is like closing the barn door after the house is out.

Hi Semicolon

If you do go for a new CPU cooler do check (clearance) as your RAM has high heat sinks.

They are kinda high. But hopefully I can find a cooler that will fit.
