Dust Remover Spray

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I'm sitting here at my office and there's a can of

right next to me

On many of these, if you turn the can upside down and spray, the liquid propellant (Tetrafluoroethane or R-134a refrigerant) will come out.

Anyone try blasting their processor heat sink with the liquid air duster propellant before ?

If you use the whole can, you can get lower temps for.... 1-2 mins?

Oh yeah, watch out for condensation as well.... Generally, not a good idea and waste of a $8 can.
