How do you deal with blowing that towards/in "fan-ned" areas?

I guess one has to hold the blades so it doesn't so it doesn't spin.

Leaf blower - lol!biggrin.gif

I let the fan spin. It makes a funny whizzing sound from spinning so fast.

I am kidding folks! Do not do this. Hold the fan blades steady when you blow them out.

Use something non conductive like a Popsicle stick to block the fan blades from turning while you blast them. If you let them spin way above rated rpm you can permanently damage the bearings. That's especially true for the psu fan.

Yeah I knew about that is why I mentioned about holding the fan blades.

The best thing I have found is an air compressor with blower attachment. All I do is take the side panel off and blast away. Only way (other than a breakdown scrub with soap and water) I can get my case as clean as I like.

Was losing the cat hair and dust battle until I got a small air compressor. It would take 4 cans of air to clean my case once a week before and it still wasn't as clean as I can get it now. Nowhere even close.

I can clean my fans, fan filters, vid card, psu, all of it without having to take anything apart. Saves alot of time.

Yeah that under $50.00 initial investment saves much more time and especially money of purchasing that canned air.

My lady would bring me cans of air she got from work. I never had to pay anything for canned air I thought life was good then.smile.gif

Even looking back through it was a joke. Never got the air pressure needed out of the cans to thoroughly clean without having to take things apart and still had to bust out the toothbrush sometimes.

Got a small air compressor for $100 used and there's no looking back. I use that compressor for so many things other than cleaning rigs it's hard to imagine living without one.

No offense as it would go for me and some others reading this that would admit it to themselves = an air compressor can also be used to "clear ones mind" as to do the right thing and or do it right the first time figuratively speaking. lol!

I was kidding! I do use my conductive finger to hold the blades, but a popsicle stick or pencil would work better.
