Well, I've been gaming for a good streak now... About six + hours each day for about four days. Crazy, I know!

I just started to smell some burning rubber, possibly. I'm worried, so I shut down my computer. I try to distinguish what is burning but I can't tell.

The side-panels have been off, forever. Dust has built on fans, and on grills.
Is this what can be burning... the grey built up dust?

I tried to sniff te powersupply, as well as GPU.... and tried the same with them on..and tried to sniff where they both exhaust...

It's not so strong, and I was looking for suggestions.

Dust your case. You do have a Fermi in your case so ample airflow is really important. Remember to dust out your power supply too.

Silly me, i've had my card running with no After Burner activated....

That could be the issue, and/or it can be the issue with dust...

I have yet to source out the smell, but my guess is PSU or GPU.

Probably the PSU man.. be careful.. it might eventually blow and take some other components with it.
