One of the most essential functions to make your iMac run at its peak and avoid hardware failure is its cooling system. Overheating problems are the leading cause of hard drive, motherboard, video card and other component failure.
Dust and Heat – The unseen enemy
Electronics naturally attract dust, debris and pet dander. After some time, if not properly maintained, dust can infiltrate your iMac’s cooling system – acting like insulation that traps heat inside instead of exhausting it out.
Some symptoms of overheating are sudden system shutdowns, fan error on boot, dirty components, burning smell, slowness or freezing.
Additionally, your system uses thermal compound to dissipate heat away from the CPU to the copper heatsink. After time, the thermal compound can deteriorate leading to insufficient heat transfer causing damage to your components.
