how often do you clean the interior of your PC

#61NintendoNut6Posted 4/27/2014 6:03:05 PM
I suck the dust off the filter through the front of the case everytime I vacuum the living room , so about once a week. Haven't had the inside opened in a long time...

At least twice a year.

Probably not enough, I think...

I clean mine about once a year. I have filters on every open part on the system. and magnet filter covers over the fans.

Every 6 months, although I clean off the dust mesh on the outer case once a week.

I tend to do a thorough inner cleaning just before summer and just before winter. Main reason for summer is there is usually a few weeks between hot weather, and putting my AC in. That's when the pc needs the most breathing room.

Never.


Have fun one day finding out your PC won't turn on and it can't be fixed because it's been caked with dust and rendered useless.

For me, I try to clean it out every 2-3 months. I have an electric duster that plugs in and blows out all the dust. It takes longer to unscrew the case than it does to get all the dust out.

By that time I'm sure my computer will be so outdated that I'll need a new one anyway. I'm already finding some games that I can't max, I know it won't last me that long from a performance standpoint.

I have never cleaned my pc, bought a 580 many many years ago and have never had a problem.

PC's just attract OCD kids who feel the need to clean their pc because "it feels like the right thing to do"

Every Monday and Thursday I take my computer apart and clean everything individually.

Me too. I soak everything in peroxide while I'm oiling the fans and reapplying thermal paste.

Once every 8~11 months, or so.
My case is not some "completely perforated from all sides"-kiddie crap, it's insides are decently protected from dust and dirt, so I don't have to clean it often.
