    Hello,

    I've just rented an Epic and got wondering if there are some infos about how to clean an fan?

    It's IMHO very important that people get aware that the air path of the camera is crutial for it's cooling. And you can't just blow air through the fan. More crutial clining is sometimes needed.

    Art brush and small vacuum cleaner is good too. - That camera has definitely earned its keep somewhere. Looks like a refridgerator condensor in a fish and chip shop.

    Is there a filter that exists and is end user serviceable below that grate? Seems some dust particles could have slipped through the grate. DEPA filter, perhaps somewhere?
    Thank you very much

    Puffing it out with the fan in place is ok as a weekly thing. Longer term remove the fan and shoot out the heatsink with compressed air. Do it from the top and bottom to clear all the gunk out. A small paint brush is useful to brush the heatsink fins.

    Well, for me, I am using my car vacuum cleaner because it's cordless and handy. My Black+Decker BDH2000PL seemed to clean well on a fan and I don't see any problem at all.

    whats up guys, my fan it's acting pretty weird and noisey. I cleaned the front one, but there's not much i can do on the top one.

    Have you guys tried the dsmc fan upgrade kit? i want to know if it's worth it.

    All the best
