A Good Cleaning

I always keep the outside of my PC pretty clean - using the vacuum around the vents each each week to remove the dust.

The back is a wiring nightmare, and it usually gets no attention at all.

So when the power went out a couple of weeks ago, I decided to unplug the whole system and give it a good cleaning.

I was really astonished to see the condition of this poor CPU.

The outlet fan in the back had a very thick coating of dust - it was almost hidden.

All of the connection ports were full as well.

After that was cleaned up, I opened the the case to see the innards.

It was unbelievable - there was dust everywhere.

It had been about a year since I had taken it completely apart like this.

I thought I was getting a lot of it before it entered the unit by vacuuming the outside each week.

Guess I will be taking it apart more often.

It wasn't giving me any problems, why, I don't know.

If I was in that condition, I would be making sure everybody knew!
