She's doing it all wrong, actually. It's much safer to remove the keyboard and really scrub those circuits. And be sure to use a mix of 2:1 Ammonia to Bleach for maximum effectiveness.

Because simply having the keyboard in front of you and the laptop behind you is just plain impractical.

From the submitter:

My new video card is rather LARGE, and there was only one slot on the motherboard which could accomodate it. It's VERY close to my sound card (which also cannot be moved), and I noticed a strange "ping..ping..PINGPINGPING" sound coming from the case. All the heat generated inside was making the entire video card warp slightly (this only occurs when playing Fallout 3 with LOTS of mods) and the fan was coming into contact with some of the solder points on the sound board! Yikes!

He had problems with overheating so he decided to fix it with little pieces of plastic? This should end well.

And love overheating and replacing his parts every 2 months. Oh well, at least he can sleep soundly while torrenting the newest episode of Jersey Shore. (For the record, I am extremely embarassed that I even know the season premier was on last night)

From the submitter:

The silver ducting is from a portable air con unit designed to stop the multi-million dollar machines overheat. The PSU fan on the PC pictured failed, and instead of replacing it, this baby kludge was born from momma kludge to duct cold air into the back of the case.

Hey bro can I borrow some cool air?

Redirects all of it.

Myself, I built a desktop a while back and I probably dust it once a year, but also do a mild cleaning whenever I upgrade a part. Usually just a simple wipedown and a couple of blasts from the ol' air canister and I call it good. What about you guys? Any special tips you use for getting rid of the gunk?

(bonus points if you post your own rig)

A little fresh air, some sunlight and some water. Just a few short weeks and they'll grow into dual core!
