PC Peripherals Air Cooler or AIO for High end CPU if your home is a dust magnet !

I am using Corsair400Q for more than 2 years. Solid reliable cabinet for my dust magnet setup but takes a toll in terms of cooling though. Cabinet is well protected from dust from all side but keep in mind that cabinet shell on top of dust filters often take a hit on ventilation. I have R5 3600 (Corsair H60) and RX590 with 50-60deg idle and 80deg on load. I’m not satisfied with temps though but little to no dust makes me happy.

What specs are you considering for your next build???
Processor, mobo and gpu will be the last in my consideration either brand new or used one from here.. depending on the best the market offers at that time.

My most sought after assets will the cabinet followed by AIO & ram.

I don't require monitor, keyboard, mouse, psu, speakers, hdds, ssds etc. (got ample :cool:)

These are few such incidents... its India eod. Lame, silly, cheap, unprofessionalism idiots right from top to bottom.
Hence is it better rather safer to opt for AIO from other brands?

Well, I have run a proper loop for many years and cleaning dust from a radiator is tougher than from an air cooler for sure. You have to be extremely careful as the fins of the rad can easily bend and get damaged.

The primary bit about dust is how effective your case filters are. If the case filters do an adequate job and your case is setup for positive pressure so that dust can't enter through other holes/crevices, you will not have a dust issue simple as that.

My case isnt affected this bad with web etc. even after months but its mostly the thick dust which gets into cpu cooler fins and fan blades.
In your case lookout for small spiders which might have housed inside the cabinet.
A complete disassembly, deep cleaning etc. will help but also ensure the room and table where you keep your setup is free from dust and spiders and insects. Else even aio or anything cannot save you from this menace..

First that is not spider web, its just the dust I don't know how it got that way. rest of the cabinate is clean (normal dust present) , only this part have such thing. The house I stay right now a lot of dust as my mom likes to keep all the windows open for laundry to dry :banghead: can't do anything. plus my rig runs for more than 12 hrs every day so I think its normal for such senario. How I clean this dust is with a Rs. 20 Paint burst (50mm), don't take more than a minute. so the Idea for cleaning the radiator is with the same. super easy and safe as its not an electoric component. Plus I plan to get a blower for this purpose, if hair dryer with cooler air will blow static charged air.

somebody who spoke the truth ,the new gen want every thing shiny and fancy ... ,get a ****ing noctua and let it rip, even after dust gets collected on fans and cooler fins it doesn't affect cooling maybe 1 to half degree and complete peace of mind

I do own a Noctua NH-u12 model for the old rig I think (friend is using it). I don't know why by it was heating. due to dust I think.
