After installing a DVD drive and some memory, I've noticed that the inside of my Dimension XPS Gen 2 is very dusty. Primarily, the dust is not on the motherboard/components, but rather, is collected in the corners and in small areas (even though I only had my PC for about 6 months). I heard that dust can insulate heat, so would it be a wise idea to clean the dust? Would it be wise to clean it regularly? And how would I clean it?
Thanks for your time,
It is wise to clean inside a system regularly, I clean inside the case every six to eight months, using canned air [please read the instructions prior to using] and a small soft brush to clean the fans, grills and openings. For more general hints about computer cleaning, read the following,
Prior to opening the case, read the instructions in your owner's manual, regarding electric shock and electrostatic discharge
