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.

Re: Dusting your computer to keep it cooler by Anonymous on Wednesday, August 10 2005 @ 11:15:28 CEST
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.
