Lights, camera, PSU flip

I’ve finally mastered class. And whilst I can’t currently work out why the ASUS Aura application isn’t recognising my Phanteks light strips, I am very happy with how it turned out. I have at least finally gained control of the RAM lighting (which always should have been easier – they’re plugged straight into the motherboard for god sake).

In addition to this I’ve made the biggest change in my entire PC building life – I’ve flipped the PSU over so that now the PSU fan is an exhaust fan. This means that it’s now not conceivably possible for ANY dust to fall inside the PSU – the build up of which is not only more or less impossible to clean out, but can also be catastrophic in the long term. I only checked briefly before doing it but pretty much every source said the best direction is the PSU fan facing downwards – so long as the bottom of your PSU case is perforated – which of course being a Fractal Design one, mine is.

I’ve never done this before, and I am so happy I’ve pulled it off, because the sight of clumps (yes clumps – that’s simply what happens when you clean up your PC innards) of dust falling into the PSU in spite of my very efforts to keep that from happening, was a gauling one.

I'm a gamer. I'm a coaster. I am happy in general. We're all born by chance and we're all gonna die. That makes me no better or worse than you. Get over that fact and we'll probably get along. I comment on the Google news feed a lot. Oh, and I swear quite a lot.
