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

    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.

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

    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.

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

    Sadly, I have lived. <sigh>

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

    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.

    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.

    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.
