The past 2 weeks i have noticed that my H70 cpu cooler has started to not cool my cpu efficiently. It would normally keep it cool at a steady 32-33c but lately it's been idling at 40-42c!! I've not yet checked the thermal paste but the radiator does look abit clogged with dust... can dust really have that much of an impact on the cooling efficiency? Or has my pump slowed down/slowly giving way now?


Not quite sure what to do tbh, whether to RMA or just get a new one... or maybe it's the hot weather lately thats caused it to rise sharply.

Help!:confused:

Dust will have an impact on cooling. Clean the radiator and then re-assess it's cooling potential.
