Nice upgrade, but man, the dust. That PC needs some love!

Completely agree, waiting for an attachment for my air compressor and I’ll get busy cleaning.

Haven’t done a deep clean for a few years

Not sure what kind of case you have but it might be worth looking into one with some filters on the inlets or adding some air filters yourself. I have a meshify C case and very minimal amounts of dust make it inside the case itself. I also ensure that i have positive pressure inside the case (1 extra fan sucking air in than fans blowing out) This keeps dust/air from getting sucked in through the cracks and other unfiltered spots.

Be careful where you point that air compressor.

Air compressors push air that has moisture in it, and they can usually dislodge components on a motherboard if you aren't careful.

It's also worth keeping the fans from spinning because you can generate enough voltage to burn out a fan header by spinning them fast enough.

With this level of dust you'll probably have to follow it up with a microfiber for most flat surfaces.

No need to wait, just LICK that dust right off.

Best I can tell that’s roughly a 1078% jump in gpu power paired with a 200% increase in cpu power. Not a bad, upgrade.

I’m mid upgrade rn, I’m planning on buying the 5600x though. I hope you’re enjoying every bit of it!

Don't let the compressed air spin the fans, you will burn the bearings. Hold the fans and let the air clean the blades.

ID: hn94emj

Yeah I know I usually tape down the fans before blowing them out

Is that a Cathode?

That's an Alienware case isn't it?

ID: hna1uj9

No it’s the MasterCase Maker 5t by cooler master

This case looks absolutely awful. Get ya self either Fractal Torrent or even Cooler Master H500 or even Phanteks P600A. Any of them are better then this thing.

Less that baby. All that dust clashes with that badass hardware

Nice upgrade however I would suggest looking into a new case that for airflow and cleanliness reasons. I would suggest a Corsair carbide 275R airflow. It’s easy to build in and has exceptional airflow and good at keeping dust to a minimal

Edit: will also be fine for that cooler, I have built in one with the MA610P and it fit fine and from my understanding the dimensions aren’t too far different
