    TIL that a lot of people on TPU own or work at computer shops.

    I work as a Database Administrator. I can post databases with dirty, nasty redundant data!

    Oh, a pity I didn't know this thread earlier. I recently cleaned 2 computers from a friend who were working 24/7 for 3 years and he smokes. I had the cases opened for days to ventilate them before cleaning because the smell of nicotine was so strong I could got cancer standing close to it. I could had take some pictures, it was terrifying :laugh: And one of the fans got a brownish perma color even after cleaning it.

    Not dirt, but still nasty in my book.

    I've seen a few of those. I worked on a 80GB drive that some dumbass had an 8GB OS partition on and it had about 10% free space (I think maybe after I cleaned it up) and I had to defrag it about 10 times (between Windows defrag and JK Defrag) to make it nice. Of course, the other partition was totally empty.

    I think the worst I remember seeing off the top of my head was about 69% total fragmentation.

    Some pretty dusty pics in this thread. ICK!

    I gave up on canned air long ago and use my garage air compressor. I use it on the pc's often. I make sure to drain the air tank to get rid of any water now and then.

    I have heard of motoctross/offroad riders spraying the underside of their bikes and fenders with silicone spray before a muddy race, to keep the mud from sticking. Anyone ever try silicon spray on heatsinks inside their pc? It could keep the dust from sticking.

    I once had an HDD that was so fragmented that it just wouldn't read a complete file it could no longer boot into windows (3.11) had to format C:\ reinstall DOS 6.22 and windows 3.11 lol

    now I write up a list of things for customers to do at home which includes

    1: ChkDsk
    2: Full Virus scan
    3: Disk clean up
    4: Defrag
    5: Reboot

    to be done once a week and I tell them if it's not done it'll cost them twice as much to fix next time

    seems to work for most 99% of them only the odd lazy prick who has to much money to care

    lol. its dusty for a reason, our place was renovated while the pc was still running so there is a lot of plaster of paris and paint dust there. also there is a subway station construction in the locality so that generates a ton of dust. not to mention im in the middle of the city. :p

    it was last cleaned ~2 months ago.
    add to that two panaflow 110+ cfm fans and you have a air filter :p

    GPU is a GIGABYTE GTS450 OC2 from Barbaric Soul.
