    I used to smoke next to my computer but damn I never ever had that much crud in my system thanks a regular cleaning schedule it just makes me wonder how many fags an hour would that take to accomplish such a yuk state, kinda reminds me of some the jap import cars we used to get in at the car valets I used to work at we'd spray em with enviro green and stand back while all the tar would melt and run off :eek::fear:

    I've done that to one of my PC's, followed by 150 psi air compressor with blow nozzle. Nice breezy day out in the driveway ;)

    How have I not seen this before?

    Bumping to sub. Everyone's seen a bad case, I'm sure. I heard a rumor that dryer freshener cloths work well as a ghetto-mod fan filter. Confirm/deny?

    Also, I've heard of issues using an air compressor. Something about static buildup? Also, there's issues of the condensation being spit out the nozzle, so I was thinking about getting a water trap (like for paint sprayers). Anyone heard of this?

    Dryer sheets will work, but are rather closed off and will impede air flow. I prefer women's stockings/Nylons, to use for ghetto fan filters.

    The open cell foam that's included with mobos, GPUs, etc. works pretty well.

    easy to do and cheap to source, especially with a woman in the house, why bother using anything else? :D
