Cleaning a non-reference GPU? How to....

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Just wondering how you guys clean your non-reference GPUs?

I usually use a slightly damp cloth, but given that non-refence GPUS have nothing covering the PCBs that would be a no go?

Also what do you use to blow out the dust from GPU/Case fans?

Cheers.

You can just pick up a can of compressed air or there is a very popular vacume/blower for electronics people use....the name slips my mind. I have an air compressor in the garage I use personally. Sometimes I use the house vacume as well with the brush attachment for radiators and case fan fins as well.

I believe you mean the Metro DataVac ED500. I have one and it works great for cleaning the dust out of my computers!
