    Anybody got any REALLY dusty computer pics?

    I want to see your pictures of the dustiest, dirties, cloggededest fans and compunents you have. Just want to see how bad things can get before you guys feel its necessary to clean em out.

    Also tell me how long it took to ge that bad. Should be good for a few laughs. Generally one would start off a thread like this with his own pic but I have always been kind of a dust nazi so i dont have any pics of clogged fans.
    Boy that info was old. As am I. Currently my kids have taken over my desktops. They are both sporting matching GTX1080's. Last Christmas I got everyone Oculuses and thus GTX1080's. My eldest is some sort of CSGO champion gold label something or other. Me I work and shoot real guns. Build Comps as needed.

    I should have taken a picture of my 360mm rad when I removed it from the top of my case for cleaning a few months ago...there had to be a 1/4" of dust on it - it actually had to be run under the faucet in the bathtub to get all the dust off. I literally almost gagged when I saw it.

    Now it's hanging off the back of the case though, so it doesn't get as dusty.

    Lost a few C, nothing earthshattering but it was great to get rid of the dust just because it shouldn't have been there.

    Well I clean my room every week and dust my desk every morning. My place is just dusty.

    That's f*ckin disgusting... how can you live like that!? I see mold growing in there too. You do realize you're breathing that crap in every day and its in your lungs right? Do you ever clean your house?
    This cosmic dance of bursting decadence and withheld permissions, twists all our arms collectively, but if sweetness can win, and it can, then I'll still be here tomorrow to high-five you yesterday, my friend. Peace.
