Once a month here
Whenever i want to...
every 3 days
approx. 2 months, sometimes longer.
Every week here
wow...why so frequent for flare and matrix? I use a compressor once a month here on my desktop.
oh..must be a pretty clean case
I have sometime at the end of every week, so why not clean the case
At the end of every sessions.....I'm a little picky.XD
vac to the air filters once a month outside (it's relatively dust free here -- engineering environment)
Only 1 to 2 times/year. When I hear my fan starts to make more noice than it uses to make than I know it's getting time.
there is a hose pipe ban here at the moment so i can't clean it as frequently as usual
Hey Stannie man,The same case for me too,My fan is making much noise(never cleaned since 3 yrs),will cleaning it reduces noise??
I often use painting brush to remove the dust and other best way??
Cleaning it will get the dust out, to quiet down your fan you will need to take fan out and add a drop of oil to the bearings or whatever you have. On the fan there is a sticker, under the sticker is a rubber cap, pull the cap and put a drop of gun oil or thin oil not WD40 as it is not a oil. Put the cap back on and replace the sticker. make sure the oil in not were the sticker goes or it will not stick. Clear tape cut in a circle works too. It is important to get a sticker over the cap as it keeps the oil from leaking out.
Could also be pkaji123's prob, but I was shure my fan was just running faster and that was because there was a lot of dust in the cpu cooler. Since he didn't cleaned it for 3 years that sounds more likely to me.
Very dusty here and I chain smoke, still only take to garage and blow out about every 3 months or so....does the oil tip apply to most fans?? I never knew that, and I seem to go through allot of fans (always order 3-10 at a time- but I work on other ppls puters some)
The test rigs probably every couple of years (or longer).
The main rig 1x a year.
i'm always on top of my temps for cpu/board and graphix, when i gradually see them climbing to a max of 6 degrees off normtemp i start planning a cleancycle with brush and vacuumcleaner
this usually happens every 2.5 a 3 months, and that is with 3 cats running amuck here.
the one thing i do daily is vacuumclean my dustfilters from the outside, wich i really need to, 'cause when i leave it for three days i can spin a fur coat off them
I know I have to clean it when I cough after opening the case. Maybe 1 or 2 times per year
