By cleaning your gaming computer regularly, you can extend its lifespan and increase performance. There are a few things to consider when doing this. We have explained these steps for you.
The computer will become dusty over time, dusty computers will show a decrease in performance after a while, will heat up quickly, and even the life of the hardware will decrease after a while.
So, how will the cleaning process be done? Here are the step-by-step details
- Prepare a clean area.
- Gather the materials you will use for cleaning.
- Turn off the computer and unplug all peripherals.
- Lay the case on its side.
- Remove the side panel of the chassis.
- Pick up large dust particles with a vacuum cleaner.
- Disperse small parts with compressed air.
- Clean the fans.
- Remove the chassis components.
- Dust off the grates.
If you haven’t cleaned your computer for a long time, you can be sure that it’s going to be messy. That’s why we recommend that you do this outside of your home, on the balcony or in the garden.
You need a compressor or a vacuum cleaner to clean the computer. Make sure the compressor and vacuum cleaner have nozzles to get into small spaces. If you do not have a compressor, we recommend a few places where you can buy compressors at affordable prices.
Now that the compressor and cleaning area is ready, turn off the computer completely. Then remove any IC connected to the case. Then bring the safe to the special cleaning area you prepared before and lay it on its side. Make sure that the side panel you are removing is at the top and that the back of the case is positioned directly in front of you. Remove and save the screws holding the side panel. Be careful not to lose it. More generally, remove the dust from the case with a compressor, carefully blow the dust from the grills, processor fan, graphics card fan and all other fans. And we’re done
