My new V6GT also lowered my cpu load temps from 70° to roughly 45-50°(air-con on). So now I have no qualms about leaving my rig folding.
Damn!!! How long have you had the CPU at 70*C???????

I never thought I would have one of those super dusty cases, even with my HAF-932, but it turns out I underestimated the amount of dust in shanghai.

Yeah... Not only Shanghai. We do live on a dust ball floating in space!

I'd check that case minimum every 3 months just to make sure. You have made a nice investment to let something as dust come and ruin it for you. Glad you caught it though.

Well I was planning to get a new cooler for a while and had a few friends help me with cleaning. Man, the amount of dust in there shocked me. Maybe it'll benefit me greatly if I buy an air purifier or filter and place it near my computer. Yeah and the 80° did seem somewhat strange. Gotta make sure to check it every few weeks or so, since even two days will leave an impressive layer of dust on the side panel.

Good thing I cleaned it out. Hopefully even if the V6GT gets dusty, it'll keep it cool enough.

That would be $666.64 for what electricity costs me. You are one admirable folder.

The air purifier/filter will help but not 100%. It should allow you to then maybe check once every 6 months but the purifier/filter will need to be checked more often so it's a trade off.

Personally... I'd look into water cooling if the dust situation is that bad. You get better temps and the dust affects the cooling much less. You still need to go in and clean up along the way.

Also, remember, dust does not only cause temp issues. People do not realize this, but with enough accumulation, that dust "could" become an electrical conductor and short out your components. At least that was lesson number one we got in the US Navy when I went to Electricians school.

Well I think it'd be worth it since I wouldn't have to open up the case and take everything out. Water cooling is something I would totally try to do right now, if not for the fact that many companies refuse to do business, or do barely any business in China, mostly due to fears of fake products on the market. A guy I talked to said that the CM Hyper 212+ hasn't been sold in China for a long time mostly because someone made an exact copy of it and sold if for roughly 60% cheaper. Obviously it didn't cool as well but the DIY market in China is dead, so companies don't find it profitable to operate here anymore. To further prove that point, there has been, to date, not one legitimate EVGA product sold in China, other than smuggled goods. It's said that most peopel know ASUS, 0.1% of them know DFI, and 0.1% of that 0.1% know EVGA. Apparently there's some sort of secret society of hardcore enthusiasts that extend invitations sporadically, but haven't for a long time. Would be pretty neat to get to know them or even join them.
The static electricity part is pretty scary; makes cleaning out the case all the more important then.
