    It is very much necessary to clean your internal components of PC. Because, it needs hot air to be exhausted out of the pc but the radiators and fans easily catch dust and build plenty of thick layer. Which doesn’t let heat exhaust. So lower the temperature the faster PC would become.

  • Applying Thermal Paste:
    Thermal paste must be freshly applied on CPU and GPU it works as a heat conductor which helps heat to transfers from the core chip to radiator and grills which will be continuously cooled by fans. Just make sure to use quality branded thermal pastes.

Disable start-up apps to boost pc performance

Disabling start-up apps this will increase your boot up time and won’t put heavy load on your pc and also it will not let the disabled app to run by its own. So, do as I mentioned this will help also to boost pc performance.

Use disk clean-up function in windows

Disk clean-up is a feature given by windows which could be really helpful if you want to clear some hidden temp files. Or just make some extra space in your computer.
