PCH PSA: Time for PC spring cleaning!

#1protools1983Posted 3/30/2014 8:22:51 PM
Remember guise, it's time to bust out the compressed air, alcohol wipes, microfibre cloths and heat grease. This has been a long cold winter with lots of miles logged on the PC. Dusting and cleaning the inside is the equivalent of changing the oil in your car. Dust buildup makes the PC louder and run hotter also increasing the risk of electrostatic charge.

I just gave mine a full teardown and clean. She's running like a champ although for some odd reason I had to reinstall my wireless driver (most likely unrelated).

Respect the PC, give it a cleaning.

I just blast the insides with some compressed air and suck it up with a vacuum, I don't see any reason to go overboard like that.

You say overboard, I say doing it correctly.

Hard work pays off in the future. Laziness pays off now.

I dust it out once a month sense it takes a whole 10seconds.
