Well, I have this notebook for 3.5 years, two of them it was used by my parents. So after a year and a half of gaming on my poor little machine, I decided to clean him and see what inside.
So first of all I opened the battary and Hard Drive compartment, and took the bit of dust in there (boring). Then I opened the area of RAM, CPU and MOBO. There I found this dirty fan(I expected that). So I tried cleaning him, and it didn't go well, so I unscrewed the fan and found these huge dust ball right where the warm air opening is:
So this is the AFTER picture:
Here are all the ear picks that went into this:
And here are the results in terms of TEMP:
Before it was between 65-85 on IDLE
so, when did you all last clean your PC?
Nice! But it would have been more interesting if you reversed the direction of the fan while simultanesouly using a vacuum to suck up the dust.
and where would all the dust go to? will it just fly off everywhere or will it go through the hot air opening?
And how do I reverse the fan?
What i do is use an air compressor to blow the dust off with a vacuum close by so when the dust fly's off... the vacuum sucks up all of it.
I clean my case about once every month. but the dust filters in my antec 1200 are so easy to remove that i just take them out and wash them every week.
i do a fast clean every week (fans and filters).. normal clean every season (take away dust with dust cleaner).. and i take off everything and rebuild my pc to do a perfect clean every year.
