    I'm not done with this box, but make sure that you don't do this, as most places charge a cleaning fee.

    [face_laugh] Not sure I've seen one quite that dirty, but many I've worked on come close. When you fire off the canned air make sure it's in someone else's office. ;)

    I have seen one, but only one, that was worse... the guy smoked incessantly around it - so much that there was a coating of tar and crap on everything... the processor fan was stuck, I couldn't move it, and I tried...

    The ZIF socket was scorched, the capacitors were bubbled, it was cookedthe board was bubbled and melted.. it was quite the sight.

    heh heh...

    That's why my intake fans have filters on them. Reduces the amount of time I have to clean the thing.
