During the cleaning cycle of the unit, near the end, the fans will have picked up a considerable amount of dust and dirt. This collects on the leading edge of the blades on the fans and will change the sound from a whisper when clean to a jet roar when packed up with dust bunnies. The added dust will also reduce the cooling effect and require a higher speed to get the same cooling as when clean. I use a one inch paint brush with the bristles cut short to three quarter inch, and a small vacuum that has a plastic tip wrapped with foil and grounded. In tough areas, canned air can be used where the brush can't reach.

Would the dust build up also account for poorer overall performance? PC has been running much slower since the fan started running faster!
