MSI Graphics Card Fan helps fight dust bunnies

Ah, the inside of a PC case.  A place of horror, where a million surfaces collect a billion dust particles that rob your computer of power.

MSI is trying to do its part to fight the war on dust with the Lightning Extreme GTX580.  When a PC first powers up, the graphics card’s fans run in reverse at high speeds for 30 seconds, blasting dust off the fans’ fins before returning to normal operation when the PC has booted.  A great idea - imagine if all the fans in your case did this?
