One of the most essential functions to make your PC run at its peak and avoid hardware failure is its cooling system. Overheating problems are the leading cause of hard drive, motherboard, video card and other component failure.
Dust and Heat – The unseen enemy. Electronics naturally attract dust, debris and pet dander. After some time, if not properly maintained, dust can infiltrate your PC’s cooling system – acting like insulation that traps heat inside instead of exhausting it out.
Some symptoms of overheating are sudden system shutdowns, fan error on boot, dirty components, burning smell, slowness or freezing.
