But all of the coating has it (not just where the fingers are), and had it been nicotine it would have smelled as such I assume? It mostly smells like old slightly moldy books.
trust me it's nicotine and sweat/skin oil and mine didn't smell like nicotine either just use some fine sand paper to get rid of it then re clear coat it

Oh goodness no! Sandpaper will damage the surface. Take it apart and soak all the plastics in hot soapy water for 30minutes and then use an old toothbrush to clean off all the crud.

Not if you use very fine wet n dry sand paper it doesn't something around the 1600 grit mark is perfect as it's not just a build up of crud as you put it it's actually the clear coat that has become discoloured the colour underneath it is fine so sand gently to remove the clear coat and re-apply clear to get it back to what it should look like when new

How did it run? Did it run at all?
Miraculously the CPU survived for weeks without a heat-sink, but the motherboard died, which I replaced and then smacked his wrist urging him not to try that trick again.
Here's one that came in a few weeks ago.

On the bright side it looks like it's hardened so it should all come off in one piece?? Never knew you needed a scraper to remove thermal paste, though.

Off topic... I had a CPU fan die on an Athlon II rig a long ways back. It probably ran for an hour that way... ...just going by memory, I kept plots so I was able to see the point when the fan clearly crapped out... it was a long stretch just steadily rising. And then poof! Thermal shutdown. It peaked up in the high 80's and held there for at least 10 minutes. For those who remember owning those, that's a *smidge* too high for wayyy too long. I'm thinking the mobo actually triggered the shutdown. The CPU wanted to keep going. Or maybe it became unstable. This mobo had garbage protection on it. The heat should've set it off a good while before it did... ...or preferably it would've shut down the moment the fan died. But no. Even after this event, it was happy to boot right up and continue warming up the mini-griddle. I yanked the fan off and remounted the heat sink. I then carefully positioned a desk fan blowing directly into the side of the case. And that's how I ran it while waiting for a replacement. Temperatures were never better. But it never recovered. From then on the CPU became increasingly unstable, no matter how much I eased off the clocks. The motherboard went on to run for years to come - and in fact it still does to this day. The CPU killer never dies - it merely waits...

That should tell people how well thermal throttling works to save a CPU from meltdown. Does that CPU work within expected performance now that it's properly mounted or was there degradation?

So do I. I see roaches in a PC, I get out the gloves and sanitizing equipment and I make my clients watch as I clean. Always opens their eyes and grosses them out enough so that when/if they come back it's always much cleaner.

I couldn't tell you I'm afraid. I ran some temps and everything was normal and I haven't heard back from the customer, so I have to assume that everything is running fine.

(the white is there for comparision, my camera can't capture the almost organic green-brown, which is just miscoloration, but don't ask me how they managed to make it that colour)
My baby girl of three months old has poop in that exact color (the yellowish gunk) right now.

So...

As for those earth tones, perhaps they were smokers?

That discolouration is from Nicotine and sweat mine did the same thing the clear coating is highly porous and soaks up everything on your fingers
Ah. :)

how does this happen? Is the guy shoving his privates in the pc? Or shaving it near his PC?

Fans. Hair in general is very light and will get carried around a room/house very easily and then sucked into the PC by the fans.

I don't know how half this shit happens to be honest with you. How do you find food in a PC? I'd be willing to accept a PC full of pounds of caked on dust rather than food, bugs, or pubes.

It tends to start off as a dust issue: temps rise, people think 'shit, it needs more air' so they open the case up and I've even seen a desk fan stood blowing at an open case at times. And then, the weirdest stuff happens. You can refer to your average office keyboard for further details.

I will...the current level of dirtiness isn't high enough for me take up that task :D

I also need to open the case and do some cable management, but somehow lost the willpower to do it.

I'm OCD about that kind of thing. Even a light level of dust drives me bonkers. Your setup would instantly put me into "clean the hell out of everything" mode.

Exactly. Can't level benches or feel good about stability if there's any kind of hindrance. Especially if it's as simple as a tidy. I'm locking down with my OCD on those pics as well. Shudder.

Be careful, there is a pic on some page far back, and your desk is like the early beginnings of it. When you find the pic youll know

This is something I would never allow to myself. Looks like a pig lives there. At least I throw empty bottles and cans into the trash and clean my ashtray when it gets filled. However, if I wanted everything to be tip top in my 200 yo building, I'd have to spend at least an hour cleaning every couple of days, which I did for the past 30 years or so...I'm almost 40 years old now, no more slappings behind my ear if I'm not tidy and kinda loosened up a bit about it. I'm almost proud to be a bit messy.

I've attached another image of my older setup. From 2010 I think.

Good to hear, but you know it was all in good fun of course. I can't imagine anyone letting it go that far unless they were rotting away under that desk themselves :D

And I can only agree, a bit of a mess can be very comfortable :D

I go some use from the IME 3.0. I botched repairing my own mouse (decaying soldering skills) but the innards of the mouse I bought was good, so I just swapped them. While I did that more plastic broke off inside the bought one, despite me being super careful. Something with the plastics not right.

Anyway.

An old Qtek 9100 I found in my closet, aquired from god knows where. I miss the days when you could repair phones with screwdrivers, but OTOH modern phones don't look like that on the inside.
