Usually something that is cleaned regularly is fine, but the dust filters in the PC case are not. You guys that regular cleaning is too counterproductive. It sounds strange, but this is knowledge drawn from my practical experience. If you are interested, then sit back for a bit and listen to me share.
I dare not say about anything, but the dust problem in the PC case, I also consider a bit of experience. My room has a big balcony facing the front of the big road, so I have two fat “stooped” children, so dust and cat fur are vast.
Remember in the past I used the corn case, I couldn’t install many fans, so I opened the case open and pointed the fan to cool it. So every 2 weeks or so, the case will be covered with a layer of cat hair, tangled with dust, looking tired. After about a few months like that, I decided to buy a good case with dust filter.
I like that case a lot, it’s cool and has lots of RGB so I clean the outside quite often. But every time I clean, I also handy to sweep the dust and cat hair on the filter. But a few times, I realized a problem, that is the dust filter of the new case only prevents cat hair, less dust is less, but in general it still gets into the case and covers the spirit to sue. Well, think that’s right, the filter net is about 1mm wide, so there’s no way to prevent fine dust in the air.
So I hate it, I don’t want to clean it often anymore. I went somewhere for 2 months before I opened my glasses case. At this time, dust and cat hair have stuck to the dust filter in a thin layer, but the inside of the case is very clean. That made me “enlightened” one thing: The thin dust on the dust filter itself is the best filter.
When dust and cat hair pass through the filter, the fur will be trapped, but most of the dust will get through. However, over time, more and more dust and cat hair are trapped on the dust filter, forming a “natural filter”, much smoother than the case. And it is this “natural filter” that will prevent most of the fine dust from getting into the case, in short, “get dust to treat dust”!
So since then, I have not cleaned the sieve too often, I clean it every 2-3 months, yet my components will be cleaner for much longer. Even the last time I disintegrated the device to clean it was more than a year ago and I still found them clean and boring.
However, some of you also note that it is not good to let the dust filter layer too thick. The first is that it will interfere with the flow of air, causing deterioration of heat dissipation efficiency. The second is it looks dirty. This is the reason why I still keep the cleaning regime every 2-3 months.
The above is the knowledge that I learned in the process of experiencing the case with my house dust filter. If you have a lot of dust in your house, you should pay attention to the fact that you have a lot of dust, “hang upper” or lose hair like me.
