    This machine was located in one of the consulting rooms where they examine the animals.
    It also has probably not been cleaned in 6-7 Years.

    Thats because you live in an attic. The pets are downstairs enjoying the heater.

    I own 4 dogs and a cat, one of the dogs actually prefers to sleep right next to my computer. I think she likes the warmth. My computer is also on a carpeted floor. It doesn't look anything like that. Dust filters and cleaning it out with a vacuum and some compressed air every 3-4 months keeps it very clean, and it only takes about 5 minutes of my time.

    Try letting it go for years. Most of these PCs have probably never even had the side panel taken off since they were built.

    Use coffee filtering paper to cover the intake fan/vent holes, ddd. I did the same and it works (as long as your cooling creates a low pressure environment in your case).

    You could use silk screen cloth... I did it before on my Antec 300 side panel fan intake... I think I still have the silk screen cloth dust filter i used before... I'll upload pics as soon as I find it... I had it stitched to velcro loops then I glued (used rugby so it's easy to remove/clean) the velcro hooks to the side panel... cost me less than a dollar and you could just remove and wash if ever it gets clogged with dust... :)

    I have found several computers.. In a dust room.. And none, I say none were even as dusty in comparison to some of the systems I have seen here!

    Man....just a trick like that. Never buy a pair of pantyhose that fits your size. That could give bad impression if you know what I mean. :p
