Dusting your computer to keep it cooler

Posted on Tuesday, August 09 2005 @ 03:57:01 CEST by

Bonafidereviews has just posted an article on dust in your computer and how big of an effect it has on performance.

My mother always told me to dust, but I never did, mostly because I was lazy, but also because I couldn't find any tangible benefit to dusting. I just didn't see how I'd benefit from my room or my things being less dusty. Well now I've gotten a bit older, and I finally found a reason to dust - a cooler running computer. I'm going to give some background on my own system and circumstances first, then run tests before and after dusting, as well as explain how and what I used to dust. Read on at Bonafidereviews.

Dusting can dramatically extend the life of a PC as well. One client I work for has computers in a dirtier than most environment as was having an 18 month replacement cycle on PCs. By instituting a regular 6 month cleaning program that is now extended to at least 3 years. The client has about 40 PC which I can clean in a weekend so no downtime and the cost of the cleaning over the cycle comes to about the cost of 12 PCs so the savings are significant.
