Useful tip

If your computer seems to be running hot—indicated by all your case fans running so loudly they drown out the traffic—it could mean that the heatsink sitting on top of the CPU is clogged with dust. Of course, you'd feel kinda stupid if that was the case. Especially if you'd been putting up with it for weeks, and just assuming that your computer "ran hot". If this ever did happen, a careful application of a hand vacuum cleaner to the problematic heatsink can work wonders.

All entirely hypothetical, of course. :)
