cleaning PSU heatsinks, is there a way to do this that I am not aware of?
I prefer to just dust off the fan every few months (yes I hold the blades from spinning
buy a couple cans of compressed air
walmart, online, wherever you can find it the cheapest
make sure kill the power and press the power button a couple times, but a few seconds apart, to help clear the power still held in parts
restrict blade free spinning, (thumb on fan hub)
works best with PSU removed...
but you can do it, installed
blow air into the psu from 1 side, then another, until nothing comes out
same as doing the CPU, fan and cooler.
don't fret the talk about PSU cost
right now I am running on a $36 500w LEPA PSU that has outperformed 4 750g and a corsair 860, @ multi times the cost.
for that very reason I, just last night, ordered 2 more those el cheapo PSU's, which I can just throw away rather than repeatedly go through RMA processes.
which btw, cost more in shipping efforts than that cheap PSU which hasn't failed even once.
