CPU Cooling element

CPU Cooling element

This is the cooling element for the CPU heatsink. On the other side, next to the fan, there’s a lot of areas against this element that can get clogged with dust. The only real way to clean the dust out is to disassemble the system, open up the fan, and clean it out by hand. Attempts to clean the dust with a new can of compressed air failed. This photo was taken after cleaning the fan by hand.
