    Default Re: Cleaning inside the case

    I use a vacume cleaner on reverse too.

    Just be careful about not actually touching any of the components with it because they seem to build up quite a bit of static.

    Also stick something like a screw driver in the fans before you aim at them to stop them from being spun too fast.

    the trouble with vacuum cleaners is they can generate large amounts of static. a can of air is better. also a small brush is good for getting at that stuck on dust.

    I got a Dilbert book for Christmas on account of the Far Side ceasing production of desktop calendars.

    I've been right through it from cover to cover Honeylaser, but Dilbert hasn't orked a single cow.

    Have I been given a defective book ?:|

    Cheers

    Yes. The subject of cow orking has been of great interest to the Dilbert loving community in recent years. If the book you have purchased in less than 2 years old, and does not contain any mention of orking, cows or otherwise, then I'm afraid you should return it for a full refund.

    I always keep a 2" paintbrush around. That shifts dust around, and I've never had static troubles with it.

    I don't think static is a problem when all the components are plugged in. The connectors are covered, and everything is at "unipotential". Static is problem if you unplug a memory stick and blast it with fast moving dry air. BTW, that "canned air" is not air. (If it was, it would be even more exorbitantly priced than "Pure Mineral Water" which is bottled tap water. ) But anyway, I wouldn't rely on it's being static-free. It's moving fast from a fine nozzle. That creates static.

    A vacuum cleaner's output is much lower velocity, so will have less static potential. (That's a pun, geddit ?).

    But why not use the suction of the vacuum cleaner? Blowing dust distributes it around the room. A venetian blind attachment (or whatever they call that flattened bit of rubber hose) would probably get into most places.

    Thats quite important. I'm certainly not ever going to put the vacuum cleaner anywhere near my cases/components. If something needs cleaning, I either use a cloth or blow the dust out.
