Keeping dust out of your PC system has always been a problem and most computers need a good clean every now and then to make sure that their heatsinks are providing the optimal cooling performance, keep temperatures as low as possible.
Well MSi is now trying to help reduce the dust buildup around its graphics card heatsinks and has unveiled a new technology that will allow the fans fitted to their high end graphics cards to turn in reverse for 30 seconds when you boot your computer, helping to remove dust buildup on heatsink.
Research conducted by MSi has revealed that dust clogging up your heatsinks can cause your components temperature to increase by up to 15°C.
The new reverse fan technology aptly named “Dust Removal Technology,” by MSi, will first be available on MSi’s Lightning Xtreme edition of the GTX580, but MSI plans to include the new feature on all of its upcoming graphics cards in the future.
More information about the new technology can be found on the MSi website.
