Devil's PC Cleaning Guide

Here is a PC cleaning guide i made to save you time and money when cleaning dust from your PC. Tired of spending $5+ on canned air that only has a few uses and freezes up on you every minute? Ever notice there is still a fine dust left on components even after using canned air? I have been cleaning PC's for around 8 years now and these are a few products i use that will save you money, time, and keep your PC looking new.

DataVac® Electric Duster® 500

250
Metro Vac’s “Green Power” Blows Off “Canned Air” This newest addition to Metro’s proven DataVac® line has been completely redesigned from the ground-up. It is much more compact and comfortable to use than previous models and features a new, almost unbelievably powerful 500-Watt motor that literally blasts dust, dirt and debris off expensive computer/electronic equipment to keep it running at peak efficiency. The new DataVac® Electric Duster® is positioned as a “greener”, more effective and cost-efficient alternative to the controversial “canned air” products currently dominating the category.

I have used this product for more then a year now and it is a must have if your like me and want to keep your PC clean. This thing has a lot of power and will blow away dust like its nothing. Once you try one of these you will never go back to canned air.

Cost: $52+
Retailers: Ebay, Amazon, Tigerdirect
Construction: Steel
Motor: .75 Peak HP
Air Flow: 70 CFM

AntiStatic Brush

300
Antistatic brushes are a great way to brush the fine dust off your pc components without risk of damaging ESD (Electrostatic-sensitive device's).

Cost: $6+
Retailers: Ebay, Amazon
Construction: ESD safe materials
Made in: China?

Antistatic Cleaning Wipes

500
Antistatic cleaning wipes are another good way to clean fine dust off components like case chassis, fans, DVD-roms, PSU Case, etc. I don't recommend using these on components like your motherboard and graphics card however.

Cost: $3+
Retailers: Just about anywhere

It seems interesting to say the least! I find the first item very interesting for the fact it's an investment. you'll clearly get your money's worth in the long run, and I'm guessing it's even more efficient! I might look into this thread again when I require some dusting!
