"Crazy" Idea to Clean Tuniq Tower 120 - Page 2

post #11 of 23
Thread Starter 
Very true Cncrcmoto, and props on the 40 oz. to Freedom avatar! Another trick I heard was to put it in a bag with hot water and rice... the rice scrubs it, then as they absorb the water and swell they also absorb whatever dirt/etc. you were trying to clean off. Then just rinse and you're set.

So you're going to put salt and rice in your cooler?

I would not put rice in my tuniq tower, that will be quite a pain to get out of the fins...

I didn't say I'm actually going to do any of this, since my new LED Tuniq is coming in tomorrow. Those are just cleaning tricks I've heard lately. You're right about the rice, I didn't think of that.

Maybe rice actually has previously unknown thermally conductive properties?

Hot water and a little soap for the win here. Let it soak in some Hot soapy water and then rinse it with Hot Water. Let it Air Dry. Or like suggested... the dishwasher.

i bet its uneven surface since you lapped it so much

either way the soap is not going to hurt all that much, although it could slightly affect the conductivity between fan and fins, it doesnt affect pipe to fin which is most important

Just take the fan out and run hot water over it, then put it in a bowl of isopropyl alcohol. Take it out, and let dry. Alcohol dries pretty quickly. I think the reason they've got that oxy clean guy shouting at you is to get you to actually listen. People listen more with someone screaming at them.

Soap, water and a good brush for the cleaning of the fins.

DO NOT PUT IT IN THE MICROWAVE... Aliminium relfects radiation and will blow it up
