    isn't the dust will become resistance blocking the fan cooling the processor>?
    if i open the casing definiatly will produce better air flow,but also will produce more dust as well.:)

    He means open the case use compressed air to blow the dust off the heatsink (which insulates it) and then put the side of the case back on. Best to blow the dust off outside.
