Hey guys, I bought an acer 515 - 55 rtx 3060 max q gaming laptop 4 month ago. I was wondering what might happen if i don't clean the fans? And when should I expect my laptop to start grow problems? Thank you.

    @suayp01 You can clean the laptop after about 6-12 months depending on gaming usages and the cleanliness of surrounding. You will might feel the laptop hotter than usual, fans run at maximum speed sooner, less air flow from vents, or even experience significant FPS drops.
    The fans should have longevity. Heavy dust might clog the fan bearing and stop it from spinning.(This is less likely to happen.) If this happens to you, those fans are easy for taking out and cleaning.
    Dust usually clogs the vent first before stopping the fan.
    Lastly, you will need to replace thermal paste if you are trying to clean the laptop.

    @suayp01 components that you can check the condition are battery and SSD/HDD by using 3rd party software like hwmonitor or crystal disk info. Other components that you have mentioned are difficult to check or see when they are going to fail. Just keep in mind that keeping your laptop cool will make those components last longer.
