Drachnem has yet to learn the way of the Dremel
Do you smoke around your computer? Take a look here!

I have been doing my fathers computer systems for a long time, and normally I replace his system within a few months to keep him up to date. I built him a Chief Tech full tower and he's been using it for about 6 months now, he complained that his system was running slow etc so I popped open the case to check for over heating and found this:







Lesson is if you smoke, get filters this is only 6ish months of smoke and dust. Plus the sheer amount of dirt and caked smoke is amazing lol.

Good friggin' LORD, that's nasty! I think that's a great Anti-Smoking ad targeting the mod crowd.

Yeah I smoke around my computer and have had my motherboard fan stop working (luckily I noticed) aswell as my vga card fan stop (unfortunately it blew up). Smoking kills, folks.

It looks like there are chunks of hair on that fan...

But to put it simply... gross.

That's pretty mingin'!

I do smoke around my laptops, but not all the time (and they get regular clean-outs anyway). TBH, it's mainly just dust/dead skin that gets caught up in my fans...

Your dad needs to cut down his smoking even if its just for his pc's health. I would clean it once and tell him next time he does it himself if it's in that state.

A nice excuse, but the more accurate reason why smoking was banned on airplanes was so that airlines could vastly lower the level of airconditioning and therefore reduce the fuel use per flight. A side affect of this is now that you're much more likely to catch a cold on a plane. Still, I guess it's better to get a cold or a flu than have to deal with smoke for a few hours.

I got a free PC because it had stopped working. Opened it up to find something much like this. Not only do the parts smell really really strongly (and bad ofc), but all the gunk is sticky. Really sticky.

I just binned the heatsink/fan (only a stock one, have many to replace it), PSU and fans.

I cant say I agree with that. Whats your source of information? I have 3 years of flight training under my belt plus i'm a flight instructor. Even planes without a/c still dont allow smoking.
I'm not trying to start a fight here, I would really like to know where you heard that.

Some pilot told my dad (he flies like 2-4 times a week for business so has gotten to know people over the years). For comercial airliners they're able to have the AC doing far far less work if they're not having to keep the cabin smokefree.
