Cat Hair and Computer Components

A few months ago, my video card and processor started getting too hot. Since both my CPU and video card fans point down, and it’s dark under my desk, the hair was not immediately noticeable. But it didn’t take much hunting around to find the cat hair clogging my device’s fans. Here are some shots of the fans clogged with hair and a “ring of hair” I removed from around one of the fans – amazing. Needless to say, the coolers performed a lot better once they were unclogged.
