STRIP DOWN

Maximum PC - - R&D -

UP­GRAD­ING A CORE SYS­TEM is much like build­ing a new rig. In this case, we started by tak­ing a can of com­pressed air and at­tempt­ing to blow out as much of the dust as we could. Then, we re­moved as many pan­els as pos­si­ble, be­fore do­ing the same again, and be­gan to re­move the cool­ing after that. This gives you the op­por­tu­nity to grab a mi­crofiber cloth and clean up any fans go­ing back in, along with the ar­eas on which they were mounted. We re­placed a lot of the fans, so it was less of an is­sue, but if you’re reusing them, it’s not a bad idea to clean off the blades in par­tic­u­lar, be­fore in­stalling them back into the chas­sis.
