If you have your computer on the ground you will get much more dust because dust, and hair, dead skin, etc. all fall to the ground. I don't know if this is your case (lol), but if it is raise it off the ground and you will see a difference.

My case is on the floor and all around the back of the case is loads of fluff and dust that has gone through my case. I made an intake for the front fans through my floppy drive bay, so at least it is just sucking up dust directly from the floor. I never thought about filters my self ill try that.

To get positive pressure you dont need to turn all the fans inward, just make sure there are more fans blowing into the case thean fans sucking it out.

It is a good idea to tape up all the holes as well, as this also gives optimal air flow with out the air escaping.

My PC has almost NO dust in it, and I havent cleaned it out for months! Maybe it is because I have an $100 air filter sitting right in front of it.
But yeah, the BEST way to fix this problem is to buy a Hepa air filter or something.

I noticed that my case has a removable filter for intake fan in the front panel, but I'd find a way to filter the air coming in and plug holes. My GF has a vaio compy she bought a few years ago, I opened the damn thing up to upgrade the ram and it was spotless lol.

No matter how hard you vacuum, it is impossible to completely remove the dust. Two reasons:

1. Vacuums clog, and then they lose suction. Getting a Dyson is supposed to rectify this.
2. You go in your room. Dust is made up of lint, dead hair, dead skin...

EDIT: Most VAIO systems have some weird cooling thing. Some are water-cooled out of the factory, I think.

For all those that have dust on the case and probably those who have it inside aswell its really simple, STATIC ELECTRICITY, everytime you power your little monster up the current running through all the components produces and electromagnetic charge which turns an aluminium case into the dust equivilant of a page 3 girl, its like holding your credit card infront of your girlfriend The funny thing about static electricity is that it doesn't actually make physical contact with what ever it attracts, example, you get a balloon and rub it against your head then put it to the wall it doesn't actually touch properly it aint pinned to the wall theres a tiny gap between the surfaces where the charge bridges the 2 magnetised objects, when you get a static shock its not when you touch a metal object its the split second before well with dust it doesn't layer the surface when you switch it on, its when you turn it off and all the particles it was bridging from your freshly polished case, well gravity does the rest

I use to have my pc in my kitchen and the 8 way plug socket had an electromagnetic charge but with funny effects, in the autumn and spring when the ants come out to play, the socket use to attract them and in a 2 inch circle around the the socket I use to find about 11/12 little black dots every morning (dead ants) raditaion fried there brain? and way no ants that season lol

****insight for the week****
