Yeah, hardware reviews is not the right place for this thread. Hopefully a Mod or Admin will catch it and move it.

That is a lot of dust. Two things need to happen. 1. Vacuum your floors. My dogs create a lot of dirt and dust that gets sucked right into the PC. 2. Get some filters for your fans. I just go to Lowes or Home Dept and pick up some "cut-to-fit" furnace filters and tape them between the plastic case front and the metal body of the case, infront of the fan. Works great, and you should see how dirty it is at the end of the month. An air filter for your room wouldn't hurt either, because you are obviously breathing in a lot of crap from the air. Do you leave your windows open or something??

hey man, not to be an ass... but really think about it. (I'm surprised and admin hasn't removed that yet) This site try's to stay as clean as possible, and "legaly" that **** is inapproprite for this site, and if an investor for the site saw that they would be less inclined to put there ads up on it. I would suggest changing to something just as hot, just where you can't see the friggin nipples between the fingers (then again I was looking for it
) but seriously he's going to have to put up a warning, stating that you have to be 18 or older to see the site. I don't know, just think about it, you hurt the reputation of the site with that avatar.

back 2 the topic... what is your fan setup, have u got exhaust fans in there or all intake? if you have all intake then that is probably your problem. if dust can get in through your fans then it can get out aswell
