My System Specs

Default Dust filter

Hey guys,i discovered something awesome,i have a cheap case with a side fan that had a dust filter,but with that filter,the airflow was considerably reduced and i removed it, i have -10 to 13c on GPU ,the gpu is just behind the 25cm side fan, all i have to do is clean a bit more often but it's just awesome. i tested with the filter ,i could almost not feel the airflow..

So i would recommend to guys who have a cheap case with side fan to remove the filter of side fan or check the airflow because even when i set it the the max force there was almost no effect. Now i can overclock more, i had 20c at computer startup :D Of course , don't foget to blow the dust off the GPU a bit more often and that's all..

I don't hit 60c in crysis :P just aircooling in a 30$ case and a fresh room.

So,if you have a big side fan and if you don't see any effect with the airflow at the max and you want to overclock, don't forget that,i think i have better cooling than a lot of 60 and 80$ cases the side fan is very efficient now.

25c idle and 57c under gaming load,and before,still winter, 35c idle and 70c under load. generally in most games.
