Do you clean your computer inside?

I left my computer case open so that there is enough air can flow inside to make the processor cooler. But the more air can flow inside, the more dust occur. This dust will cause the processor fan to stop rotating and will heat our processor. That's why i check the fan each time I turn on my computer and remove dusts inside my computer. I put a drop of oil inside the processor fan to rotate more smoother and faster. How about you?How do clean your own computer?

Bro....dont clean your computer from inside yourself all the time. And little bit of dust doesn't harm it but you do it by keeping it open and cleaning it yourself. If you want to clean it just take it to computer shop he'll do it for completely and will just take minimal charges.

We did that once too. Open the cover so more air can come in but it resulted to more dust like you said and ended up ruining my pc. Actually, since the fan wont work well and my brother use the computer almost 24/7, it resulted to busted power supply including motherboard. Luckily i can have the MB fixed rather than buy a new one.:P

I suggest to clean up your computer at least once a week if you used for almost 24/7. Thanks for responding

I have a computer maintenance service and they come to the house once a year and take the cover off and clean the inside of the computer. I don't even take the cover off myself. I'll leave that for those who know what they are doing.

This made me laugh because it made me think about my last job. Quite often I would have to take the desktops outside, open them up and attack them with canned air. I can't believe the size of the dust bunnies that would accumulate in there!

I dust the outside and once in a while use the vacumm around it. But I don't dare touch the inside .... I'm too afraid I will do some thing bad to it.
