My mod for the day
got ya beat buddy
HA yeah id say so! LMAO
SWEEEET! i want that were did you get it?
Even if I could buy that thing, I would still pick cans. Cans have guaranteed dry air (no moisture). A compressor just draws in whatever air, and when you blow it under pressure, it could actually liquify on the surface (the moisture liquifies). Bad for the components.
Err. I don't believe anyone would actually use one of these on there computer, you would have a big pile of broken computer parts before to long. I think he was just being funny.
+1 to that. If someone did actually use one of these to blow out a PC, I don't know if that would be considered economical or just plain stupid.
I would go with the latter.
Some actually use it. If my memory serves me well, Mark (MKmods) uses it (?) It's not stupid, just risky and economical on the long run.
You mean he actually uses 150psi on computer parts there would be capacitors flying everywhere.
Dont mind the dust I did not get to clean it this week
Doesn't have to be a full blast of 150 psi. It can always be regulated. You can have a nozzle the size of that of a can, but with axillary outlets, you regulate the pressure the nozzle finally has. One compression of air lasts for months of cleaning. Some people just keep the cylinder, and have it compressed at a gas station or something.
One of those cans only lasts me a few weeks..
wow , graet shot's
I've used an air compressor to dust out my PC numerous times. It doesn't blow components off of boards, and you don't do it with the computer on. It's no riskier than canned air. Even canned air can cause moisture build up on your parts. If the can gets tilted just a little too far, it causes the moisture in the air to condense on your components.
Well, i have some materials coming today to do MK's 24 pin mod, im also nipping out to get a rotary tools and some other numerous bits - including a can of black spray paint. This Jr will look nice by the time im done, im sure Ill put some pictures up as soon as im done!
I've been doing it with my four shop computers for about 6 years now with not a single hardware failure! Of course, with the nozzle it's regulated to about 80psi and I have dryers/filters on all of my air hoses. My air compressor (bottom end) is over 50 years old, the motor is from 1973 and it does about 165psi according to the guages.
Beautiful pictures, keep em coming People !
Well then, that just goes to show how assumptions can be wrong. I apologize.
Ah, no need to apologize. I didn't take it badly or anything, and believe me I can see things like ram chips and the like getting blown off with a lot of psi for sure!
we use a 150psi compressor at work to clean out pc's
