So I decided to take apart my laptop today and give it a good blow job... get your mind out of the gutter! lol

 

Anywho, I got sick of hearing my fan run at high speeds while the system was basically idling. I decided to see what the temperatures on the CPU were in a before/after scenario.

 

Before

Average temp at idle: 75 *C

Average fan speed: 5000 rpm

 

Average temp at max load: 85 *C

Average fan speed: 6000 rpm

 

After

Average temp at idle: 67*C

Average fan speed: 3700 rpm

 

Average temp at max load: 75 *C

Average fan speed: 5000 rpm

 

Isn't it amazing what a little dust can do to your computer... This makes me want to go blow out my PS3 so it doesn't YLOD!

I think if I blew my original 60GB it would had lasted a lot longer. Weeks before I got the YLOD that fan was warning me.

I fear for this thread....I think people are going to start showing before and after pics of blowjobs.

Could be a good thread...just depends on which direction the camera's pointing. :)

How do you blow it and how do you check the temperatures?

 

Compressed air. I use Lavalys Everest Ultimate Edition for the temperatures (apparently there is a new program that has replaced Everest now, called AIDA64). Great program. It tells you everything you ever wanted to know about your computer, and more.

 

That is of course if you were wondering how I blow out my computer ;)

Your 60gb probably had bad soldering like mine and everone else's. It can be fixed, I fixed mine twice...lol

I'm thinking about taking my 80gb apart and cleaning it out. I think I've had it for more than a year so the warranty is expired anyway.

You can also use this. They have a free version. I use this especially when I am putting a heavy load on my PC. I run a very hot graphics card that idles at around 129 degrees and under load can get up to 180-190. It's a pretty handy tool.
