If you are a keen PC Gamer it is important that your PC is cleaned at least once per year – some may even recommend much shorter intervals depending on the gamers usage and playing environment.
PC’s that are used for gaming generally are used more than the average PC and can build up substantial amounts of dust and dirt more quickly. This can lead to performance issues as the dust is often built up within the fan and heat sink which can cause the CPU and other vital components not to be kept as cool as they should be for optimal performance.
Moreover the thermal paste that is applied to keep the CPU cool can often become brittle in texture rather than smooth and soft. This may mean that the CPU is overheating which can result in system failures.
How often thermal paste should be reapplied is hard to confirm as it will depend on the quality of the thermal paste used initially by the manufacture or the last place that serviced the machine however if you are system cleaning every 6 – 12 months then this should be changed during this service.
If you feel your system needs cleaning please get in touch with us and we will arrange a booking with you.
