Cigarette Smoke kills Computers TOO!!!!

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I'm up in KC K this weekend and went by my buddies house to check on his computer because it's been running hot(BY THE AY HE IS AN IDIOT) pulled is heatsink and it was caked with cigarette smoke looked like a layer of cotton all the way around the fins and was blocking off all the air flow. Clened it off after about 20 mins of work and 2 cans of air and it's running fine. BTW all the fans in his computer died to because of this had to go buy all new ones.
THE LESSON HERE IS DON'T SMOKE AROUND YOUR COMPUTER!!!!!!!!!1

Dust is not mostly cosmic derbis. Dust is actaully about 60% skin flakes - thats right, most it comes from your own skin. But smoke only makes it worse. If youve ever looked at smoke crystals under a microscope, they are very pointy, so they snag the dust and cause it to clump together.

Indeed. There is a woman i routinely do maintainance to her computer, and she smokes around her compy. I swear there was gunk in the fans. Ewwwww.....It can also screw up your HDD as well.

IMO Smoking...on my scale of most horrible things.....ranks just under pedophelia
