Thread: Advice on cleaning my PC's guts

    Default Advice on cleaning my PC's guts

    As you ca see, this is a country where dust is immense. A fine coat of dust accumulates on everything in 2 days. So my Pc shares the same fate.

    Its been only a month and half but my Gpu's top side (Aka backplate) is coated with dusts. Now I cant touch it or brush it cause it will apparently BBQ my Gpu or other components with static shock.

    So how do I clean it without much hassle. I dont wanna unplug my Gpu every month. I have been recommended Compressed air sprays but it seems to squirt liquid which can put my Pc to sleep forever.

    What should I do? Ain't there no compressed air sprays which don't pee while farting? Or should I just use a small pump to blow off dust like my football pumper or that creates static shock too?

    I cover my whole Pc with polythene bag at night but seems like it doesn't help. Cause I have to keep it covered forever in order to keep it dust free which is impossible.

    What do yo guys do when you face these problems? Thanks in advance and greetings.

    brush it. you worry too much. finish in three or four swipes. or blower (reverse vacuum type) are less than 1k at few shops though garbage in terms of build quality so may break afew months after. and I wouldn't worry about dust accumulating on backplate, rather on the heatsink and fan blades. invest on a fan controller to turn off case fans when not gaming and if all the case fans are connected to motherboard, use SpeedFan. if you're using hard disk clean that too. everybody forgets about the little guy.

    I can't see fans properly as its facing downwards. How often do you clean your Pc? I thought I needn't to clean it for atleast a year. Ye I think I'm worrying much. I will just use a blower.

    By the way, where is this heat sink of Gpu anyway? I can see 2 fans and a backplate. There is a weird arse looking pipe at one side. Is that whst you're referring by heatsink?

    Don't blow directly at the fans of the GPU. Hold them with your finger, then blow at it. So, it will not move, and less chance of static electricity.
    Any of the meme/quote I post here on this forum is a "দেশ ও দশের সম্পত্তি"... Download it, Edit it, Share it, Put Your Name on it...I will not mind as long as it is Legal and does not convey any Illegal Message...
