I mentioned earlier this week in some message thread here somewhere in the lounge that it's been a while I've blown the dust out of the NUC sitting on my desk...and that while initially it was whisper quiet, nowadays it took very little CPU activity to get the fan running at full speed and stay there. Sensor readouts, if they're to be believed, held steady at 80+ Celsius, and I literally couldn't hold it in my hand because it was just too hot.

After months of putting up with that, I finally took the time this morning to take the cover off and blow the dust out of it. There didn't seem like much, but it's making all the difference in the world...it's now been a few hours, cores are holding steady at ~50-55 Celsius, and I still haven't heard the fan kick in even once.

So even though it should be common sense, here's a friendly reminder: Do your devices a favor, and take the time to periodically blow that dust out, even though you might think the exterior looks fine.
