Dustless Case - Page 3

post #21 of 40
Filters will help. But I would just invest in an air compressor. Dust is normal with fans.

I think your over exaggerating the point of dustless. We all know that 100% dustless over time is impossible. Tho keeping dust accumulation to a near-less level is. If you setup your case properly with good filters, you can go a entire year before you even have to bother blowing out the internals with compressed air. I think his goal is to cut down the amount of times he has to disassemble his machine to thoroughly clean it.

NEVER use an air compressor or similar equipment to blow dust out of a PC. You will blow it into sockets and other small spaces where it can cause damage to your components. Only use a vacuum to clean your computer or you are just asking for trouble.

Yeah because vacuuming won't cause static.

Filtered Positive Pressure works very well thumb.gif
I have 4 filtered intake and 0 outlet fans, in a NZXT Switch 810.
Good temps <60 on a 3770 at 4.4Ghz with an Hyper Evo and <70 on a GTX680 FTW 4g at 1300/6450.
System's been up for 4mths now, dust is very minimal.

15 years and have never had and issue..... ever. There are times when compressed air is the only solution to getting dust out.

Are you kidding me? Vacuum cleaners create tons of static electricity, your on the brink of frying your own computer. You can go down to your local computer store (staples etc) and find cans of compressed air, specifically made for blowing dust out of electronics. Or if you do have a air compressor in your garage you can use that on a very low PSI.

Can one of you guys explain to me how using a vacuum to suck dust out of a computer creates static electricity and is a risk to "frying" components? I use a vacuum that is strong enough to not have to touch the computer. If there is no contact between the vacuum and the computer, there is no possibility of creating a static charge and destroying parts. Essentially, the dust is moving through the air and across your components whether you are blowing it around or vacuuming it out so the risk of static discharge is exactly the same with both techniques - ZERO.

The only big difference is that if you use compressed air, the odds are that you WILL eventually blow dust into a PCIe slot or a SATA socket or some other part and render it useless. Using a vacuum, there is no way of doing this.

Feel free to disagree with me if you want, but there is no need to be a sarcastic a$$hole about it.

I'm assuming the static electricity may become a problem if you have to make contact using the vacuum, since most vacuums require at least a little bit of contact, especially when the dust is a bit caked on. Most vacuums aren't grounded or made of metal for the hand-held head portion, allowing it to generate and not discharge some static electricity AFAIK, so a bit of contact might discharge it onto your computer.

As for blowing air in, odds are the dust you might end up blowing into a PCIe slot or SATA socket will be negligible and not make a difference. You're just as likely to get that tiny bit of dust in with your case fans. And a tiny bit of dust won't render a port useless. Keep in mind most ports have some sort of springing to make sure there is strong contact. This would make some dust in the ports not matter.

The only thing you shouldn't use compressed air to clean in a computer is the inside of an optical drive.
