How to clean a dusty pc?

Marukudeibu
Go to solution Solved by vK 3 1 RON,

Compressed air canister. And then take the case outside (with parts in) and spray all that compressed air onto the CPU fan, gpu + everything else. And then take it back inside, take off the dust filters (wherever they may be) and clean them with a wipe (and water, that's what I do) And then you're golden I think.

I need help on cleaning my pc, what tools should I get and how should I clean it?

Compressed air cans work quite well. I use a small electrical cleaning brush to get into places that the can doesn't clear. 

 

EDIT: Air compressor is even better if you have one. You don't have to get right into the PC with one of those.

Think he means set the vacuum to blow not suck.

Compressed air is brilliant. Do not use a vacuum because it will build up static, however if your vacuum blows air out i think thats fine, just dont suck up the dust! . Do not blow either, because you can introduce moisture into your system.

Use compressed air.

 

Just don't point it at any fans and see it spinning at faster speed.

 

It could damage the bearings and make it louder.

Yeah, NEVER mess around and do that. I did that to my old PSU fan for fun and had to get a new PSU because the fan broke and was pretty much irreplaceable.

As others have said.

 

But never turn the air can upside down and spray it. You'll get freon all over your parts. It won't hurt them unless you continuously spray them.

Compresed air cans are good, you can usually find them for quite cheap to.

Lick your finger and rub, the dust will stick to your finger and you can get into difficult to reach cracks
