    That is one healthy portion if it is :laugh: that's a sandwich bag or something!

    This reminds me, on an ebay sale I forgot to remove certain grinding discs from my desk <_<

    @Reventon cheers !

    Although has to be said, i'm going to have to mod these coolers to get them working properly :laugh:

    Only got two heatpipes out of four working on the gpu, still I've gone from the high 70s to mid 50s in furmark on the card : ] Just waiting on a GPU shim.

    And I think I already mentioned the CPU sink has two heatpipes not touching as well :laugh:

    I think I might get something a bit thinner for the GPU mind you, this thing over hangs a good 4-5cm.

    I got a PC from one of my mom's friends to work on today. I had already went over to their house and ran the HP diagnostic on there and it seemed that the HDD was on its last leg. The plan was to take out the drive and scan it in my computer, but I opened it to find this:

    So to ensure that it's not the caked up dust on the PSU's intake or CPU fan that's causing the problem, I'll blow it out in the shop later when it cools down outside. These people have 4 or 5 indoor cats and I assume this computer hasn't been opened in about 5 years.

    I think I'll actually have to take it completely apart to get it clean. The motherboard needs to be put in the dishwasher :rolleyes:

    i used to work at a computer repair shop and i got a few like that or worse in every week, FFS why do people care so little about their computer? its one of the most important tools nowadays,

    online banking, personal stuff and so on

    and then they treat it like that :shadedshu

    Damn, that's a crazy amount of dust.:shadedshu



    To most people it's just a random box that sits in a corner and lets them go on the interwebs, the last thing they care about is actually opening it up and cleaning it.:(

    Tell me about it. Plus, there's nothing at all technical about blowing out your computer every once in a while, just be careful where you point the nozzle. HP even made it easy on that computer, there's just one thumbscrew in the back that actually stays hanging on when screwed out. I'm not even sure if these people know that you can open up a computer.

    Yep. I had a SFF Acer until about 6 months ago, I had to void the warranty when I opened it. Luckily I never had any problems with the hardware so it was alright. Still pretty ghey though.

    Most HP's can be opened without voiding the warranty. They also seem to be good about using set form factors and such.


    Yes I'll be wearing a mask and some glasses. I hope that the cleaning fixes the problem.
