    A thought just crossed by mind for keeping the bottom clean.. how about getting a laptop cooler which blows air towards the vents and adding filters to the coolers intakes? that way the fan should supply plenty of air while blowing relatively clean air at the intake for it to suck in. Doubt it would cool the laptop itself though.

    yeah, im thinking about that.. if i can get one for 20$... id still put the filter on the laptop intake though. because there would be a gap between the laptop and the cooling pad.

    GoAsusGo, they aren't reusable due to the sticky contact required to hold them in place. The magnetic ones are removable and reusable.

    But, you won't need to reuse them if you don't pull them off. Cleaning should only require wiping with a damp cloth on the *outside* of the filter. The dust is being kept out, and should pile up on the outside, never making it to the inside.

    You can get a pack of them when you order so you have replacements on hand in case one gets pulled off somehow.

    And, you might ask if they have a G750/G571 custom already made, save you some time measuring to fit.

    Please come back and let us know how they work out, if you order them.

    i have 12 gb now, and ive never seen the computer use more then 4.

    After i cleaned the computer i downloaded CPUid HWmonitor to see the temp and if the fans are running.

    The fans seem to be running more now, since the cleaning. maybe cause the weather is getting hotter nowadays.

    I hope its not cause of the filter i put on the intake vents.

    according to CPUid HWMonitor -
    temp - value 41c - min 39c - max 53c

    (if you know an app that will tell me how fast the fans are running, pls lemme know)
    (none of the apps i downloaded seem to work with my fans)
    GoAsusGo, AIDA64 will give you fan CPU speed, but nothing gives GPU fan speed.

    Those temps aren't high, they seem low enough. If you are curious about how the the intake filter affects temps, do some benchmark runs with/without.

    You didn't put filters on the back fan exhaust ports, right? Just the bottom of the case air intake?

    No, i didnt put filters on the back fan exhausts ports. i only put filters on the bottom of the latop, over the intake slots.. around where the Hard Drive access panel is.

    ALso, i just bought a cooling pad.

    My cpu fan speed seems to be constantly 2200 RPM.

    .. that cant be right? arent fans variable speeds? and i dont think they are running 24/7 - right now i dont feel any exhaust, and its a cool day so, shouldnt the RPM be ZERO?

    now its 2300.

    but i swear i dont feel a thing coming out the back.

    and not a sound.

    so the fans arent on.

    when the fans are running, i do hear them.

    so why doesnt the rpm hit zero?

    GoAsusGo!, CPU fans all idle at 2300, quiet with hardly noticeable output, the CPU fan never shuts off, and the GPU fan also likely does the same - but since we don't have a way of reading the speed we can't know for sure

    The Lfan (from the front) is the CPU fan and is the one that kicks up audibly most of the time.

    The Right fan is the GPU fan. We get a lot of reports of no GPU fan running, which it is imperceptibly like the idling CPU fan - but it only kicks in audibly when the GPU comes under load.

    Asus does their best to keep the fans quiet until cooling is really needed.

    As long as idle CPU is around 45c and 40c for GPU, +- 5-10c, you are fine.

    If the fans weren't at least idling around 2300, the CPU/GPU would contain/build up heat, and your temps at idle would be get very high quickly and cause the fans to kick in at high speed to cool it down, up and down constantly, and that would be annoying

    i did not know this.. good info.. thanks.

    i googled "cpu fan 2300 rpm" and found your other thread.. lol
