Is it hard to clean the Twin Frozr?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone,

As the title says. Is it hard to clean it? What are your ways of maintaining it or cleaning it. Just for future preference. I might buy a 560Ti Twin Frozr.

Thank you.

Easier than cleaning stock cooler cards. Get a dust off can and blow the dust out from either side :O its easy!

Good to hear. There are some dust that are hard to clean off even how strong the air is. You need to wipe it using a wet cloth but will it harm it in anyway? Just very mild wet cloth.

As long as everything is completely dry before it receives power again, i.e. let it sit for an hour or more, then there should be no issues with a damp cloth.

No problem, [ame="http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00017LSPI"]here[/ame] is a helpful thing that I use instead of compressed, it's not quite as powerful as compressed air but much more cost effective. I find with this being on hand, as opposed to having to go out and buy another can of air, I can stay ahead of the curve for computer cleaning instead of only doing it when I notice temps or noise start to rise.

^Nice pictures
