CM V8 GTS dust issue?

Recommended Posts

CM V8 GTS seems to have a dust issue. I wonder anyone has the same issue.

 

I built my PC last march with V8 GTS. It has been less than two months clearly, and I use my PC less than an hour a day. 

 

I really like how it looks but today I found collected dust dropped from the fan. See the attached pictures.

Dust has been collected on the right bottom of the steel part, and some large dust bunches dropped from it onto the VGA card. Some of them might fall into the VGA board through the holes.

I am worried that dust might come from the grinded moving part of the fan. 

 

This seems to be an quite problem considering the time I have used it. Anyone has the same issue?

What case are you using?

 

Is the PC in the same room/place as your previous PC? (And I assume your previous PC had no or less dust issues?)

I have not had a PC for a while. 

 

I put the PC on my desk in the living room, and I don't think the place is particularly dusty or so.

By the way, it seems strange that I can see the pictures only when I logged in due to the permission, and probably the others cannot see them.

 

There was not a such problem yesterday, I guess. How can I fix it?

Oh man honestly this is first time i see V8 GTS had issue like this :)

 

I live in an environment that is quite challenging and dusty but didnt have dust like your :) . my system run 12h/7d 
 

My suggestion ( Dont know if can help or not ) , just trying to clean out your system ( disconnect - install again ) and see how the result

 

 

Hope this can help.

Hi all,

 

The problem seems to be more serious than I thought. 

 

Today, I opened the case, and tried to clean the dust. It stuck on the steel panel like crystal and I could not remove it. What I called the dust does not seems to be dust even unless it is solidified really hard.

 

Somehow the picture is not shown correctly. I am attaching new one after trying it clean it.

Hi all,

 

I completely disassembled my PC today. Here is a clearer picture.

It seems to be some sort of rust.

 

Best,

That is not supposed to happen, at all.
I suggest to apply for a RMA.
