That is sickening, my parents smoke right next to the AMD system, and we have two parakeets.... doesnt get any dust in it at all - wierd. My case gets really dusty and my room is very clean, no pets in here, and no smoking, but a very small room.

Take a look at that dust under a microscope sometime.

You might be surprised how much of it is shed skin from you
your pets, & fibers from clothes, carpet etc ...
Quite common in every household. Kind of disgusting when you
really think about it.

Anyone have and air filter in their room? I kind of want to get one to keep the dust down so I don't have to do constant dusting inside and around the case.

Also it would be easier on the lungs in my crapolla dorm room.

From the looks of it the heatsink isn't even on the motherboard. He must have taken it off to get better pics.

I'd like to see some proof of this:



And this too:



I would show you the parts but they are in the trash...
duh...


the stinking yellow film tends to kill fans first...then everything overheats then you get a dead computer.....

you sound like the guy who says...I never look twice before I cross the street...I havent been hit yet....WHAPPPPPP!!!!!


btw merely running a smokers computer in my house for repair stinks it up so bad i have to open the windows...case fans exude the stink....


but you cant tell because smoking has destroyed your sense of smell and taste.

I usually take electronic cleaner to the parts and it looks like yellow **** running off everything..
i refuse to touch that sticky crap....

OBTW...I def charge extra for smokers computers......

I did not deny that smoking is a nasty, unhealthy habit that leaves sticky yellow crap on everything; I merely refuted your statement that the sticky yellow film fried motherboards. You never said anything about a chain reaction due to clogged fans causing overheating... you simply said the yellow sticky stuff fries motherboards, which is blatantly false. Our sense of smell and taste is irrelevant.
