Re: [opensuse-factory] CPU overheating since recent update

You could try your machine with the 13.1 or 13.2 live. If it doesn't
heat up, it is not dust.

Make sure to hold the can correctly (read the instructions) to
avoid propellent to go out as well. That should move dust around
enough to make things better. And if it does make things better,
then you've got confirmation that dust is to blame.

I will try it, though, but I don't know when I will have time to
drop by the electronics store, so it may take some time.

Around here (Spain), I can get the can at some convenience stores,
that we call here Chinese stores. The cans are cheaper and contains
less gas, but it suffices.

The gas is typically butane or propane, so don't use it in a closed
room or near fires. No solvents. It is impossible to compress enough
air in a light metal can; it has to be a gas that when compressed at
room temperature liquifies. And butane is just it, and cheap.

Previously freon was optimal, till it was found how damaging it was to
the ozone layer... so it was forbidden.
