yea, your computer is almost identical to mine by the looks.

And yea, its about 1.5 years old and absolutely filthy. Made a big difference man. That dust was so thickly caked that it was letting about 5% of airflow through. Its deceptive because the sheer size of the Kandalf LCS radiator means that it can actually passive cool about any CPU on the market but with a quad core overclocked running high load apps it struggles to keep it under 65.
