should components be removed when using high-pressure vaccumes / air compressors?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm about to purchase the Metro Vacuum ED500 DataVac 500-Watt 0.75-HP Electric Duster 120-Volt to clean my pc every once in a while, and i don't know if the air will damage the components. now, i know the obvious that i shouldn't hold it point blank, and i should obviously have it off and unplugged. i also intend on keeping the fans still because they can get damaged if forced to move.

any advice? i am upgrading my sig rig these next few weeks and i want to make sure i take care of my investment.

Might want to take the GPU out and do it separately but other than that you should be fine. But like you said you do want to stop the fan blades and probably be a good few inches from the mobo. That thing does have a lot of force to it. tongue.gif
