Beware using compressed air to clean computers — 8 Comments

  1. I’ve found using a small portable hairdryer works well. it’s warmth also helps to loosen crap around the cpu and ram bars. I blow on low with medium heat from the inside of the box onto the housing of the fan to release the grease and dirt. it also helps to make the cables more pliable making them move around more easily while using a small vacuum to extract the dust bunnies. then I turn the case upside down. and blow the hairdryer on cool at highspeed to remove the remaining debris.

    works like a charm. plus no harm to the environment from the cfc’s in the car.

  2. I know a developer that shorted out his PSU because he used a can of compressed air and then turned his pc back on right after doing it. Some moisture got in there from the can of compressed air.

    A good tip is that if you are using the canned stuff, to wait about 10 minutes before turning the PC back on, to make sure it’s dry.
