Ive got an Antec Sonata II case and I am curious about this black vent thing that covers the CPU heatsink/fan.
The vent makes it a huge pain to clean the dust out of the case because i have to remove it to get behind it.
I am just curious if it actually makes a difference in terms of keeping the CPU cool. Altough there is a place for a fan inside of the vent, I dont currently have one installed (only the CPU fan). So it seems like this thing is just preventing the cpu heat from being carried out more quickly by the other two fans in my case...
So do you think there would be anything wrong with just keeping it out?
