That gets everything that's trapped in the vapor chamber?

The four philips screws by the gpu on the pcb hold the actual heatsink in place.

You can remove that also to further clean.

What alarms me about this thread is, the GTX580 has only been released less than 10 weeks.

If you are already needing to blow it out I would be seriously looking at your PC's running environment, maybe buying a case with better air filters etc.

It doesn't need it. But the side panel of my case has a "filter" but big that it doesn't stop much and I blew it with dust off while it was still on the case so the dust just got on the gpu. And I would put a fan on it form the side blowing air in from the window in a room that is messy and dusty and is in need of cleaning. (Just haven't the time). So really my fault. I cleaned it all up going to clean up my room here tomorrow, turned off my dumb fan and turned on an air purifier and turned my case so the side fan isn't sucking up so much air. I will be replacing the side fan dust filter to a small size.



ALSO: Guys how often should I take the entire card apart to clean? Every 6 months? Every year?
