Windows 7: Windows 7 x64 8gb RAM still running Dayz @ 10 FPS

Is the CPU fan turning?

Are the fins under the CPU fan clogged with dust?

I am a 57 year old gamer and I have never lost a CPU or Graphics Card due to overheating and I have never owned a liquid cooled device.

I do clean my CPU and Graphics Card regularly.

Hi TheSpirtOfRadio,

Its good to know that is working fine once processor is set to run at optimum speed. You should purchase a good heat-sink and fan assembly it should not be necessarily the liquid cooling assembly only.

Keep us posted with the results so we can advise you further.

I would re-seat the heat sink with fresh thermal paste. Is this a stock heat sink fan? It would take a very poor flowing case and a heatsink caked full of dust to make it over heat when running at stock clocks, even on the stock HSF.

Use an air compressor if available, don't waste your money on canned air.

Canned air is not a waste of money. Compressed air from your standard home air compressor can contain many unwanted things, the worst of which is water, dirt and oil and should not be sprayed into the inner workings of your computer for obvious reasons. Canned air is clean and dry and the little plastic tube affords exact placement of the airflow right where you need it.

If ever there's advice not to follow this is it. Never vaccuum a PC, the elctro-static discharge from a vaccuum has the potential to kill any/all of the components in a PC. Use compressed air in short, sharp bursts while holding fan fins still so as not to damage the bearings.

NEVER use a vaccuum.

I've always used an air compressor. Never noticed any water, dirt, or oil come out. Any amount that is not noticeable is not going to harm a computer. The only legitimate criticism of air compressors that I've heard is that they can be too high of pressure, but that is remedied by simply airing it down to about 30 psi and leaving it off.. as well as general common sense.

I've always heard this, but i've also heard many many people say that they've vacuumed their computer for years with no issues, one guy said he has a computer repair shop and uses an ordinary computer to clean out hundreds of computers, not one having an issue.

I would imagine if you had the computer grounded to the wall (plugged in) that any static discharge would be drawn to the chassis of the computer and go strait to the ground, leaving nothing harmed. Regardless, I only use a vacuum to clean my fan's dust filters and make sure to keep a good distance from the motherboard. Better safe than sorry.
