oldollie never seen pc`s from the inside? it`s a Dell, form factor BTX... the first Dell BTX mainboards were pentium 4.

BTX has an airflow tunnel, it`s opened here.
Below how it should be:

Why in the hell don`t computer manufacturers put in a damned lint screen like the one on the dryer? It ain`t that hard. Hell if they were *really* smart, they`d incorporate a Damned Air Filtration System with a removable element. Meh.

So, how old is that thing? It must be, like, a 386.

This happens when people smoke around computers.

I used to tear-down and rebuild PCs and such for an electronics recycling firm in our community. You`d be surprised what you find. I`ve seen many a computer like this and worse. Nothing like showing up bleary eyed early on a Monday morning to find a mummified mouse or other small mammal in the housing to get your week going.

Had to service a supermarket`s POS pc`s once - discovered they`d all been set up with the extraction vents against the side of the cupboard. They looked pretty much like this picture, but with more flakes of onion skin.

we had one get this bad or worse when i was little. living in a 100+ year old house in the country with 4-10 dogs in the house 24/7 as well as turtles, birds, iguanas, rabbits, cats, etc, will do that to a pc in a few years. PSU got so hot it caught fire

Last time I gave my keyboard a good shake, enough weed fell out to make a couple of spliffs. That was a good day.

Last month I cleaned mine, I extracted enough cat hair to build a new cat all together.

You haven`t lived until you find a dead rodent in a customers computer.

Sadly, I have lived. <sigh>

I opened my comp the other day and was expecting something like this.
Other than some dustballs stuck in the ventilation the cabinet was actually kinda clean.
I now have a new "respect" for people who actually manage to get it as dirty as on the picture.

Mixture of pet fur and tobacco smoke, seen close but not quite this bad.

Smoker most likely. But as mentioned before, very poor airflow design, the air is supposed to go through the fins of the heatsink

In the early 90`s I repaired computers for 8 years. I never saw one even remotely as bad as this. I have no idea how this would happen.

The heatsink is not covered in fluff so the airflow is all wrong
