The Power of Dust off for CPU cooling

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Many of you know that when holding a can of dustoff upsidedown it sprays a nice freezing spray. Well I took one of the computers built from parts on spring cleanup and decided to put it to the test.

I forgot to include a CPU-Z Screenshot but it is an 800mhz Athlon XP on an Asus A7V.

Directly spraying the HSF I managed to bring load temps down a whopping 40 Degrees! Keep in mind this is a very temporary cooling method and was really just done for a test. The load temp originally was 55 degrees and look at the screenshots, a nice cool 15. This was a well spent 3$. Sorry I do not have any pictures.
