Dude--compressed air FTW!!! (dust bunnies)

Does that GTS breathe OK that close to the bottom?

Your experimenting makes me wanna play around some.... If I had the time...

lol- yeah, I know. Everyday I have to clean out atleast one computer with compressed air and a vacuum. You'd think my rig would be clean as well.

As for the GTS- yeah, in fact my current temps are about 44*C.

QFT!!! Does your computer sit on the floor? It sure looks like it from that amount of dust. Gross.

And yeah that GTS looks like it's flush against the bottom of the case. I'm assuming it's just the angle of the pic?

No, if you look closely in the pics you should see my desk, and the little section of my desk the tower sits in.

And I know it's dusty- I hadn't opened the case since I first put this rig together (beginning of this year??? ). Out of sight, out of mind. I'll be buying some canned air tomorrow while at work, that's for sure.

As for the GTS, it is just the angle. It actually has near an inch (if not more) between it and the bottom of the case. As I said before- the temps on my GTS are super low- low 40's when "idling" and low 50's under heavy load. My proc never ever seems to exceed 50*C anymore, always stays right around 40-45*C. Me=happy.

Damn, that's nice! What are your ambient temps? We have the same card, and mine idles at about 61C. That dust is obviously not hurting your cooling any!

lol- surprisingly!

And I forgot to get the canned air today. I'll try to get some tomorrow.

Yeah, my temps on this GTS are crazy low. I think having it low like that where all the cool air is really helps. I have a 140mm fan in the front of my tower as intake and a 250mm fan on the side panel for intake as well, then dual high-CFM 80mm's on the rear as exhaust. Works nicely.

As for my ambient temps- not scorching so that definitely contributes. Lowest it gets in my room is usually around 40*F at night. If we can get a good fire going in the evening and have it going strong most the night it actually stays right around 55-64*F in my room. Temps for my rig doesn't really change much though with or without the fire, as odd as that might seem.

Brrrr...I guess that explains most of it. We're at 70 during the day, down to 60 minimum at night. With those massive fans pushing that cool (ok, let's face it, COLD) air thru there, I'm sure that helps a lot!
