The fine dust really sticks to everything, would need quite some pressure on the surface with air blower to make it dislodge. Without filters sure the big particles are easy to get rid of with a vacuum cleaner or blower smile.gif
I don't really vacuum the case, too much work rolleyes.gif Filters work for me that is when the filters work lol These should wink.gif

Our game computer in a Core 1300 case is less than a year old and the dust haven't had time to build up yet.

Used our Vacuum cleaner and a painbrush to clean out the worst dust in our HTPC from 2012. Carefully removing "dust-rats" from components and into the hoover.
I know about the risk of ESD damage on components, but had none, as the old HTPC is still working.

Actually my grandfather used a paintbrush to remove dust from vinyl-records, as he said the paintbrush not only removed dust but also ESD-neutralized the records and a more proper sound of them (I guess he was an Audiophile).


Same idea but grand dad used ordinary paintbrushes

Dust your place. I've had a PC running full tilt in the workshop for over a year and it's dustless. Oh, it's not even in a case.

Kind of hard to keep a old trailer dust free in the country side when you got a neighbor with two full size production chicken houses behind ya, cows, and a watermelon field. tongue.gif

Yep, I leave out in the middle of middle no where farm land area. biggrin.gif Nearest city is 30-35mins away.

When I was stationed in North Cali in a small city. I hardly ever had to dust the rigs. Now....it about once a week, especially the 24/7 folder. Thing seems to eat dust up or something.

I use an old paint brush with soft bristles. Cleaned several PC's with it and never had an issue plus it does a great job honestly.

I dust and hoover my apartment all the time, the dust never stops. I live in a city though, when it rains on our balcony, even though the rain never hits the doors, the glass gets full of dirt.

Hey all. I've got a Define S and currently have a 360 rad on the front set as intake and a 240 rad at the top location set as exhaust. I was wondering if it would be a better set up to swap the locations of the radiators?

Three fans in and two out? Sounds bueno to me, assuming no other case fans. Positive case pressure is a good thing. You get much less dust in the case that way as long as your intakes are filtered. I'd leave it as is. But as far as temperatures go it really won't make a difference one way or the other.
