4GB is not addressable by applications, only 2GB. The 4GB is essentially a mirror - 2GB + 2GB, but apps can only use 2GB.

If i designed cooling solutions, I would try to integrate something that makes it easy to get all of the dust out of the thing when it's time to clean it.

That thing looks so hard to clean dust out of, Probably need like 50 Q-Tips and a shop vac!
