Help with cleaning my H60

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
So I use a blower(Black & Decker) to clean the dust out of my system, I just got an idea to clean the dust easier of the rad. Attaching a brush to the blower when ONLY cleaning the radiator. Is that a good idea ?


A picture of the brush:

Just remember that rad fins are pretty soft. As long as the brush is soft, shouldn't be a problem.

I was wondering if that would create any static whatsoever. I will be posting pics of the brush in just a minute.

That looks fine just dont scrub the RAD, static shouldnt be an issue, but you could hold the rad against the case to ground it if you were worried.

Air compressor works great, much more air than just a can of compressed air.

Never used the dust brush from a vacuum before but I'll give it a try. I always worried about the static as well.
