My PC gets really dusty and I am sick of cleaning it out all the time.

What do you guys think of these products?

I really think it would effect your cooling in the case. Even in water cooling we get dust. I run one 120 mm fan to move air thru the case. The power supply has a fan. But I don't get as much as I did when I just use air cooling. All those fans boy.

You can get filters for your fans.

i just buy a can of compressed air every now and then and give the case a good spray works great

Use some fan filters... I clean my pc about every 3+ months, and it's barely dusty. The fan filters trap 90% of the dust.

The problem is my case is very open. (http://www.dansdata.com/pcv1000.htm)

So even if I put filters on my fans, it will still come in through the case.

It'd make for a fun project- but you could put some kind of thin foam over all those vents- nothing too thick and something that'd still allow "breathing"- but it'd catch most the dust.

Would probably cut back drastically on the noise from your case as well- maybe allow you to get a few higher RPM fans to help push air through your case. Of course, you'd want to put filters on the fans as well.

All you would need to do is get a fine mesh and attach it to the backside.

You know what works great are those stupid Swiffer things strategically taped to the inside of the case. You don't have to look at them that way and they're cheap enough to just chuck when they get filthy. You can cut them and use masking tape to attach them, and they don't restrict airflow. Ghetto mod ftw.

Couple things that help: Positive airflow/pressurization and fan filters. By positive airflow I mean more intake fans than exhast fans.

Does it make your case smell good too? If so, I am totally in.

That's hilarious, never even thought about it. We use the unscented ones around the house but yeah, I bet the lemon scented kind would turn your rig into the world's most powerful room air freshener.:p

I was thinking about using Dryer Sheets lol. Then the computer would smell like Downy haha. The swiffer idea is pretty good too. Either way I need to do something cause cleaning out the dust is terrible. Especially with allergies :lol:

Do you typically have either the A/C or heat running and have central air/heat? If you're having terrible dust problems, you might have somebody out to clean the ductwork.

Even with filters, my computer still gets filthy on the inside. If I let it go too long, even several cans of air don't get all the dust out. Having a cat doesn't help either.

This is why I miss my old roomates air compressor. That thing rocked for getting the dust out.

I think the best solution would be to sell your current case(to me :bleh:) and get something with better air-cooling. :thumbsup:

Things that helps

1. Dont put you PC on the floor
2. Remove all carpets
3. Close all doors and windows, use an A/C with air filtration
4. Get rid of the cats and dogs (In that room)
5. Do not smoke or allow anybody to smoke
6. Wear non static synthetic clothes and latex gloves

I purchased this product a while ago as i have a problem with spraying 'canner air' on expensive motherboards and other hardware components.

Before this i used Green clean air power http://www.mrpcclean.co.uk/power-400ml-valve-g2040-p-162.html

Compressed air releases water droplets invisible to feel or see and really shouldn't be used on expensive hardware. The Datavac is ESD safe and no static disharge will emit onto hardware.

Can you please switch to the non latex ones? They are starting to make my balls itch.

I like the case a lot. The ventilation is great and my temperatures are awesome. The only thing is dust accumulates like a mother****er in it lol.

:rofl

No. Given how open my case is, it only makes sense to use what is essentially a giant filter that surrounds the case. I mean I am the only one who uses my PC. I'm not going for style points. :lol:
