I would very much doubt it's heat, as he says it works OK except for games.

If it was heat, even general use would make it overheat.

As far as vacuuming, you have to be kidding if you mean a household cleaner

The static can fry the components. They should never be used inside a PC.

I disagree with you Insomniac. When you're gaming, your computer will produce much more heat. The cpu and the video card are under stress and heat up considerably.
The computer will only heat up moderately when idle (not gaming).
As far as vacuuming out the case, as long as everything is disconnected, including most importantly the power supply, I don't see a problem. Just make sure you're not on a carpeted area. I've been doing it for years and have never had a problem.
I stand by my above advice.

"I've been doing it for years and have never had a problem."

So, that doesn't mean it's safe. You could run across the road blindfolded and not get hit by a car, still doesn't mean it's safe or smart.

It doesn't matter if everything is off, it's the vacuum cleaner which contains the static and that can fry sensitive electronics.

This is the exact reason why they sell cans of compressed air and dedicated portable vacuum cleaners.

Do a Google and you will see that every expert recommends you don't use a household vacuum cleaner.

Yeah, whatever. Man you love to argue.

To the poster:
Take the side of your case off and see if your games still crash!!!!!!!


Let's see if the poster even comes back to check his replys.


Funny Ins., you didn't comment on the fact that the computer will generate more heat when gaming. Hmmmm?

It's got nothing to do with arguing, and everything to you giving out crappy and dangerous advice.

Everyone knows you don't get anywhere near the insides of computer with a vacuum cleaner

The fact you didn't shows the extent of your knowledge, or lack thereof.

Yeah, now I remember why I've been staying away from this forum. Pointless arguments with a spoiled child.

Your above statement shows the extent of your knowledge in this area, or lack thereof.

Unless the poster comes back to check on his replys, I'm done with this thread.
