Improve Your Laptop’s Performance by Cleaning Its Fan

Mojaxx recently noticed that his MacBook Pro wasn’t performing as well as it used to. His system was glitchy and running very hot. He knew it was running too hot because he has a free app called SMCFanControl, which, along with letting you adjust your fan speed, shows the temperature of your laptop.

Suspecting that his fan might be clogged, Mo opened up his laptop and cleaned it out. The trick worked: Mo’s system was running smoothly again at a normal temperature.

Watch him go through the process on this week’s Tips and Tricks.
