Wow! Dust and temperature...

chef was running in its new location behind the CD shelf since end of December. Yesterday evening I took it out to look at the fan configuration. Boy, that box was DUSTY!
Removed dust coating from hard drives, and cleaned the fins of the CPU heatsink. The impact is pretty impressive:

Chef disks temperature

Chef case temperature

Chef fan speeds

Note, how the CPU fan speeds up after the cleaning, as well as how the temperature of the hard drives drops as there is no more dust to insulate them from the cooling wind of the fan mounted in front of them.
