More about : vacuum computer o1die a b B Homebuilt system November 14, 2012 10:34:41 PM I don't. I prefer the canned air. Only places that need cleaning are the fans and heatsinks. A little dust elsewhere won't hurt anything. Be sure to clean the power supply fans. m 0 l manofchalk a c 105 B Homebuilt system November 14, 2012 10:34:57 PM Its okay to vacuum around the machine, but I wouldn't stick it inside the case. Things are essentially static generators. Just take the rig outside and use a can of air, will work much better than a vacuum at cleaning out heatsinks and such anyway. m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
