lol, i hate dust, and snce i have carpet it's really bad. For my new build since it takes from bottom (rv02) i've got a friend cabinet maker to make a small platform to hold it about 10cm from the ground and prevent alot of dust coming in from the bottom.

nice job lol, gotta remember to not get lazy with the cleaning
It's surprising how much even a thin layer of dust can impede cooling.

Yeh i have carpet to, and no offence to the mother but she's not the best duster in the world

I need to devise a dust filter that doesn't impede airflow.

Sooner or later every dust filter will impede the airflow, unless you clean it regularly.

I recommend making your filters out of panty hose, if you shop around you can find a lot of colors.

Sure thats what you use them for? lol. I get bad about it but if you take a can of air or air compressor about once a week. Your computer can do wonders. it only takes a matter of a few minutes a week if you do it regularly.

I have a small portable air compressor, canned air gets expensive. But even still, the fans I have filters for still look brand new while the fans that don't have filters still require wiping to look as good.

the tjmax of the Q9550 is supposed to be 95C
check if Real Temp is using that number for tjmax (it could be using a value of 105, which would report 10C hotter than it atually is)
