I just put new SLI motherboard into rig which is replaced another motherboard for MY SLI video cards. I uninstalled all parts from motherboard. anyhow, I noticed H50's radiator got DUST:

I realized that H50's radiator easily get dust quickly than my car's radiator. that's right? I just have H50 in rig for a month and 2 weeks.. wow, H50 got DUST soo fast!

 

Good thing, I purchased fan filter like few weeks ago. But I didn't install it on H50. it kept me delay for install filter. Ha!

 

anyway I clean it as hell and blew dust out of it before install Fan Filter 120mm..

 

Now I installed it on H50: step by step- 1. Fan grill, 2. filter, then 3. front cover.

I hope fan filter will help and dont get any dust on radiadtor. And I did test temp. it keep lowest temp in rig very well..

 

I wish Corsair has own Fan Filter for 80mm - 120mm, Because I am crazy fan of Corsair equipments and parts.. ;)

I bring my whole rig out into the garage once every couple weeks to blow it out with my air compressor,so I really dont worry about dust too much.

 

Sean,

Thats exactly the same thing I do! I use my air compressor & blow out the dust into my garage so the dust wont go back into my house also. Funny to hear you do it the same way very cool! I do it every 2 months.

This way the GPU dosent have to be removed etc......

Nice having a compressor around the house isnt it.

SeanG, You are very clever! :D: Because I never have thought of air compressor. I live in the APARTMENT. and I dont have air compressor. :(:

 

But thank for some feedback..
