I'm getting tired of buying these Compressed Gas Dusters, is there any air compressor out there that is made specifically for computer cleaning? (Will not damage any components) Thanks for the help.

I dont think there is but I still use my 100 psi compressor fill it to like 50 or less and I blast away.
After 2 years now nothing has been damaged.
I've done it on a variety of motherboard OEM and Enthusiast.

I haven't personally used it, but I see some people recommend it around here.

I just take my tower out to the garage and blow it out with a big compressor, I'm sure any one would due.

This law has touched everyone at one time or another. In my case, multiple times.

I have a little putzy air compressor that was $10 at the flea market that works fine for this purpose around 15 psi.

Haven't killed anything, I wonder how much I've saved in canned air..
