    Hi

    If your wanting to give your machine a 'blow' out, you're best calling into your local computer store for a can of air.
    These are designed for inside PC's and any moisuture that comes with them evapourates into a gas, leaving no residue.

    Just ensure your PC is shut down, power removed and you have earthed yourself first (touch the copper part of a radiator).

    Area's you want to get are underneath the fan on the CPU cooler, all circuit boards, power supply vents and then any other area's you can get to.

    Hope that helps.

    Take it outside and place it on a stable platform before you open it and blow it out, unless you like having dust flying around inside your home. :eek:
