Clean-computers

Post by Tim Fortner on December 29th 2014, 4:44 pm

I just want to remind everyone to clean their computer at least twice a year. I clean mine twice a year using a shop vac and qtips. Once a year I totally disassemble and clean. Dust build up causes excessive  heat that will reduce the life of computer components. $$$$

is it not true that a vacuum can cause static electricity and should never be used on an open computer case?
