It shortens the life of your PC. That's why so much attention is paid to cooling your system. Fans draw air in and force it out of your PC, allowing it to flow over the chips and heat sinks in order to keep things cool.
Unfortunately, the cooling fans also suck in dust and dirt. It clings to every electronic component in your PC and prevents air from flowing across the chips. Instead, the air flows up and over the dirt, allowing heat to build up in your PC.
You can prevent the build-up of dust and prolong the life of your PC with Clean-Aire Computer Enclosures. Let the dust and dirt build up in the filter, like the ones shown below. Then just clean and replace the reusable K&N Filter. It's that simple.
The photo on the right shows a six-month-old Pentium 4 used in a home office. Not much cooling going on in this PC, especially in that high end video card. When the owner complained that his computer kept crashing, we cleaned it out and put it into a Clean-Aire™ Computer Enclosure. It hasn't crashed since.
You won't find much written about dust and dirt in PCs. But, we've all known for many years what it can do to a computer. Read the article by Larry Mingus, written in 1998. He put the issue in perspective many years ago.
You can prevent the build-up of dust and prolong the life of your PC with Clean-Aire™ Computer Enclosures. Let the dust and dirt build up in the filter, like the ones shown below. Then just clean and replace the reusable K&N Filter. It's that simple. But, don't clean your filters too soon. Even with all the dirt built up on the filters below, air flow was not restricted. As you get to know your filters, you'll see that they are unlike any other filters on the market. And you'll be amazed at how much dirt they stop from piling up inside your PCs and Servers.
Clean-Aire™ Enclosure Design
Our Clean-Aire™ Computer Enclosures are designed to provide a no-nonsense, practical approach to protecting PCs and Servers from the devastating affects of dust and dirt at a reasonable cost.
For years, we routinely downed the servers and PCs at a sheet metal fabricator in Anaheim, California to clean out the metal dust. We also had to clean systems at other clients, like an exotic tropical plant distributor in Costa Mesa, Calfiornia with servers and PCs in their greenhouses. But, we viewed the downtime and costs to our clients as excessive.
Though there were other dust-free computer enclosures on the market, they ranged in price from $700.00 to over $900.00 each, plus the cost of HEPA filters, adding several hundred dollars per year to the cost for each PC. So, we began working on a more practical solution.
Our first requirement was a reusable filter. We began a testing program using baby powder. We tested every filter we could find until we came across K&N Filters. These high air flow filters have an overall efficiency rating above 99% and are the only reusable filters we found that could stop baby powder.
Our list of criteria included a reasonable cost, quiet operation and an attractive design. Still, we wanted to insure that our dust-free enclosures would be able to protect computers as efficiently as anything on the market. We believe we achieved our goals and that you will find our enclosures to be, dollar-for-dollar, the most practical and cost-effective enclosures on the market.sures to be, dollar-for-dollar, the most practical and cost-effective enclosures on the market.
