    Most are ML140's Pro Led's with a couple 120's Pro's Led's too.
    Very nice fans. I've been running ML140's on my radiators (inverted) for probably two years and they still purr. A cheap fan would struggle running inverted right from the get go.

    Well, I just dropped my system idle temps by 7C and my graphics cards idle temps by 10C.

    Anti-static brushes, a can of compressed air, and a vacuum cleaner to catch the dust, works wonders.

    I've been wanting to clean it for the last couple of weeks, but couldn't find/take the time, and I hadn't cleaned in a few months(I usually do it once a month).

    Even though the mounted dust screens/filters & fans looked clean from the front, taking them off and looking at the back side, looks like the poor rig was stuck in a haboob, and that after only a few months

    It wasn't really that bad, just a lot of fine dust that makes it though the filters.
    But you can't use filters that are too tightly woven without sacrificing airflow.

    I was thinking about buying a mini compressor sometime, but a more professional one
    Canned air has a few negatives about it, the price adds up, the liquid that sprays out sometimes, you can only really use it in an upright position, and I bet the propellent used in it(when still liquid, is not good for some components.

    @Cliff Those DataVac's are made for professional electronics/computer cleaning. They're more efficient, more powerful and safer than canned air. It's a very good investment.

    I use a 3 gallon air compressor. It has loads of pressure and really gets the rads cleaned out. Been using one for many years without issue.

    Same here, except mine is bigger than 3 gallons. Works just fine....
