Dust in vertical I/O?

NonStandardUser
 Share

I recently got an H200i, loving it so far.

But I'm new to the vertical USB and 3.5 jacks on the front I/O. I know most cases utilize vertical up-facing ports these days; but has anyone had trouble with dust and grime building up on the vertical ports? I saw a phone that had to be dismantled because of dust clogging up its 3.5mm(Although it obviously wasn't even facing up), so this is a cause for a mild concern.

I never had problems with getting dust and crud geting into my computer ports but I always used port plugs/covers since I live in a very dusty neck of the desert.

Do you have dust problem overall in your room or case? Naturally falling dust comes in less quantity than what fans for example pull in. So if you have dust problem overall, then you just need to clean those ports more often.

If you feel they get too dusty you can always just tip the case forward and use some compressed air to blow them out.

It's not always easy to get dust, etc. out of a port. Blowing compressed air or gas into a port could just drive the dust in deeper. It's much easier to just use a port plug or cover. They are very inexpensive. Performance PCs has a large selection. modDIY has a larger selection although their search engine is fuzzier than most; you have to dig through a few kore pages.

I've legitimately never had a problem with caked in dust. I just shoot into a corner at an angle with the case flipped on its side and it works fine. If it needs agitation I have a paint brush just for that.
