Computer Location question

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I have a very dusty room and my floor is carpet. Currently my rig sits on the carpet and I noticed that it gathers a load of dust very quickly. (I clean it every 3 months max because it gets dusty so quick.) If I placed the rig higher say on my desk, would this help reduce dust?? Furthermore, is it unsafe to put my computer on top of anything that has electricity? (eg: a minifridge?)

puting up higher may help a bit with dust depends on how dusty room really is.. May wanna look into dust filters, or pantyhose the cheaper solution

As for the mini fridge your safe. If your really concerned place a sheet or cardboard between computer and fridge.

Yes, if you place it on your desk, the amount of dust will be greatly reduced.
I don't think putting your rig on a something that has electricity would be a problem, but i'm not 100% sure.

thanks, I think I'll put it on my mini fridge.. it'll be half a meter off the ground instead of sitting on the carpet. Where can I purchase dust filters?

where are you plenty of sites if in the usa to get.. But if you wanna make custom ones just use womens pantyhose works great and dirt cheap..

Canada- good old newegg.ca best prices will be here if you dont make your own.

Anything above the ground is better then being on the ground.
