Where is the 'never' option?
When I upgrade the motherboard... about twice a year, LOL!
Seriously - if I take out any components that are dirty, I will do a cleaning. When I am doing a major upgrade (like I am now), I take everything out and clean thoroughly - which includes removing the radiator, blowing out dust from that and all nooks, crannies, fan edges, etc.
When I get around to it or installing new hardware.
I dont, unless there is any dust stuck on the outside of the case (like near the fans).
Thats all you really need to do since that blocks in flow of cool air.
My pc is in the 'smoking' room. When I set my overclock, I have to clean it weekly (get a 1-2C rise in temp from the dust)
Its kinda funny watching my $2,000 pile of electronics suck in a big cloud of smoke
I do mine about once a month.
Does your computer smoke, or is it you?
Smoke what?? The infamous two words that lets the world know....
Is it 4:20 yet??
i only clean my hdd by running "disk cleanup" and defrag about every month.
i only clean the dust out of my machine when it gets really dust and starts effecting performance.
so damn much that my molex connectors don't stay together
about once a month or every 6 weeks
just to make shure its all nice and clean and cool
every few months, i like to get some compressed air, clean the fan blades, dust the heatsink, clean and apply thermal paste, all that good stuff.
I usually blow mine out about once a month or so.
i do mine when it looks durty
I do when I get new hardware. But its funny when the smoke gets sucked in then exhausted out the back like my computers smoking a cig. or whatknot
I dont igve a damn. Lol
and i know some people dont. it sucks to crack open a case and its like cleaning out a vacuum cleaner
I would clean it if a fair amount of dust has built up on my parts. well I cleaned mine once, had alot of dust on my grafics card.
get your arse on msn chewy the cat.
whenever i upgrade, so usually twice a year
