With everything going digital, you can do so much on your computer. To some, their computer is their workplace and to some, the computer is their gaming arena. Choosing a computer that suits your requirements is important. But what is more important is to make sure that you take good care of your computer as well. Proper maintenance of the computer would ensure the best performance and would cut down costs incurred on repairs and spare replacement.
One of the most common problems that most computer users face is the heating issue. Ensuring proper airflow for your PC would reduce heating problems.
- Where have you placed your computer?
The room where you place your computer, the number of objects that lie around the computer, all determine the air flow. If you have placed your CPU inside a cabinet then keep the door open when you operate. If possible, get a cabinet which comes without a back panel for the placement of the CPU. Do not place the CPU on a carpet or other surfaces that can lead to the accumulation of lint.
- Choose the right case:
The internal fans on your PC circuits are designed to handle the internal airflow surrounding the components. So if you think that keeping the case open would help in improving the airflow inside, think again! Choosing the right case and keeping the case closed is the key to improving the efficiency of the fans inside. This would ensure that the fans do not have to overwork to handle the air flow. Choose the best mini itx cases or ATX cases as required and also invest in some good case fans if needed.
Do not install too many fans. Compare the capacities of each fan and position them aptly instead of crowding the space with too many of them.
