I managed to get 3C lower temps on my vid card when I cleaned the fan. But yeah, it's good to clean the pc once in a while.

I clean the inside of my PC every 6 months. You should do it too. It adds life to your equipment.

Oh yeah....they sure do make a difference. I shaved 8c off my temps by dusting out my heat sink and applying new arctic silver 5 to it. Not to mention I cleaned up the wires for better airflow inside the case, that had a little do do with it too.
