Hey guys is the Nitro supposed to have dustdefender? I have coolboost but can’t find dustdefender anywhere! Is it supposed to be there? Can I download it? Thanks! :)

    You don't download DustDefender. It's a preprogrammed piece of hardware to occasionally reverse airflow --- backflush so to speak --- to dislodge dust bunnies.


    In my opinion, an occasional vacuuming of the air intake ports and blowing thru the air exhaust ports will be just as, if not more, effective.

    Ok great thanks! So I guess the nitro 5 doesn’t come with it then..

    Yes, it does have DustDefender. But it's a piece of hardware that automatically reverses fan airflow every so often without needing any downloadable software. Jack E/NJ
