No Man’s Sky has been crashing once a day for the last week. Today I finally pulled out my case to see if dust was an issue. My radiator for water cooling was a solid fuzzy mess on the bottom. There was so much dust I’m surprised it cooled at all.
I’ve had it with basement dust since working from home and a decent HEPA purifier is arriving Tuesday. Besides feeling better, I’m excited about not having to clean out the computers quite as often. Hopefully.
Stories like this are what ultimately scared me off of water cooling. I just went with a massive cpu fan/heat sink and it’s quiet and amazingly cool. Not that it’s infallible, of course, but at least to me it feels like a more long term/hands off solution than water cooling, reading up on the cons to that tech.
Temperature uniformity chambers are commonly used with high-performance, high-voltage graphics cards to increase cooling efficiency.
The ROG-exclusive 3D mobile Vapor Chamber, together with the copper heat pipe, creates an effective and efficient cooling system that helps improve GPU performance by up to 6 percent for smooth and stable gaming.
ROG G752 has a unique thermal design that directs dust into a dust-release tunnel to keep it away from internal components. This prolongs component lifespan and ehances the overall stability of the laptop.
Interesting timing on the thread. Yesterday I took my out to the driveway and blew it out with a shop-vac. Wasn’t a lot of dust (none in the GPU cooler even), but I still like to do it once a year or so. I had to do it more often back when I had cases without dust filters.
Heat sinks on air coolers can accumulate dust too, so it’s a good idea to clean or at least check them periodically.
