Dust loving gaming computer. Can a small room air purifier or an air filter work magic ??
Hi guys !!
As a preface I am supposed to be doing game design and development for a living but right now I am stuck at entry level crappy testing . I sleep,eat and dream games and use my gaming computer for more than 72 hours a week .
Last week my system was shutting down without warning and heating up like crazy . It went bonkers and I had to get a computer technician take a look .After staying away from my beloved PC for 2 days I was told there was so much of dust build up that they had to physically scrape off the clumps of yellow dust from each component. I use a carpet, have pets and more than occasionally smoke so they tell me all this added up to the problem. They suggest I do an external cleaning and internal cleaning of the system . I guess the external cleaning sounded simple ..just use a damp cloth and clean the equipment not a big deal at all but for internal cleaning they gave me this compressed can with a nozzle ... I have no idea how to use this
I am thinking instead of waiting for all this dust to build up and embark on an exhaustive cleaning routine which my schedule does not permit is there any preventive measure ?I checked online and found that few guys out there use magnetic air filters and room air purifiers . I have neither. I was wondering whether I can use this small room air purifier go-clair.com/
which my sister uses for her allergies. Will this suffice ? what about magnetic filters ? Do they help to prevent dust build up ? Does this compressed can thingy really work ? I have no idea how to use that though...
