It’s important to keep your system away from dust. That’s why I clean my machine regularly. Not only that I usually buy old consoles, it’s even more important to clean them before the startup.

Same thing with the thermal paste. As you can see on the pictures below I’m removing the old paste and cleaning up the old mess. After that is done I’m placing some new paste on the CPU and GPU.

Here you can see the difference on the cooling after I cleaned up the system and replaced the old thermal paste with new one.

This is a screenshot of my dashboard before I did the clean up and you can see the CPU peaking at 64.3C and that’s not good for having the idle for 30min.
Here is a screenshot of temp after I cleaned up and changed the thermal paste. Now that looks way better!
