RE dell 4700 early 4700's were sent with fan reversed should blow out... did appear that some mb chips were very hot ...turned fan around .... fan now exhausts heat .. takes maybe 5 min ... amazing how much heat now released ..also installed external fan blowing into cpu behind front cover fed from harness device socket ... still very quiet but cools very much better
Be careful with this computer. The cooling system works by blowing air INTO the machine over the cpu then the heat slowly comes out of the holes on the side panel (on the left side of the machine). One reason the text may be blurry is because the video card is heating up too much. This problem is specific to this machine. Most computers have the cooling fan blowing the heat out of the case and not sucking air into the case. On the plus side at least this PC is near silent right? I would know since I own this machine. Amazingly silent it is.
