Best way to cool your iMac
Authored by: bold_seagull on Feb 13, '12 01:07:55AM

This has been a useful fix, and the SMC fan control has (for now) stopped the intermittent freezes.

I have a couple of questions though;

1. Is it worth opening up the iMac (late 2006 20" in my case) and giving it a thorough blow out getting rid of all the dust, or is opening up just as likely to cause other problems?

2. Could anyone post a pic showing the additional suction/blower fan mounted to the rear vent slot of the machine? I'd like to see whats involved prior to giving this extra solution a go.

many thanks
