My Fist In 3D says:

i actually kind of laughed when he used the leaf blower

Nathan Junker says:

Question: Are we more concerned about MPH or CFM being too powerful on using an electric leaf blower, I found the exact one you use which is this one I was wondering if this one would be ok/safe to use as well on a pc using the method and safety that you recommend for doing this you can see, this one has lower MPH but higher CFM, so would this model also be ok to use on cleaning a pc so long as I am careful like you were?

newhbh7 says:

So now you’re advertising your leaf blower method to an even wider audience lol

Nathan Junker says:

I’m gonna save so much money, thanks dude.

idknuttin says:

Why can’t you use a vacuum?

Nunsweepit421 says:

An advert for a Homelite Leafblower. lol.

Celtic Patriot says:

I find placing the PC behind the exhaust of a car also achieves the same cleaning effect.

Ryan Herrera says:

Ya, I’ve been a PC tech for 15+ years, and I don’t recommend this at all.

Using that much pressure can damage the fans, and other PCP component solder points

Compressed air is what I have used for years.

Yes there can be moisture, but it evaporates.

Craig Armstrong says:

Are you suggesting that we all go out and buy a leaf blower!!???
This is ridiculous.

AwesomeRepix says:

Oh shit Carey Holzman ^^

Hibou-53 X says:

Question ?
Is it preferable to disconect Fan to avoid generathing dc directly to computer …PSU can’t but other yes.
On a hold model…i have fix the fan to prevent moving : result i saw all the wing go like leaf.(all broke)

danny says:

why not turn on the computers. let’s see if it works.

AlexTheGreat4000 says:

Does it have to be an electric leaf blower, can you use a petrol one?

TotallyNotAW33b X says:

“We have something much more effective, and cost efficient.”

Brings out leaf blower


Glen Batts says:

what CPU cooler is that

Proxima Joe says:

what about particulates being blown by leaf blowers thus damaging the system?

Gerard Dresch says:

This works especially when bring home from recycle , some of those I have to do right away too nasty to bring in the house even then have to take apart and use a tooth brush on heat sink and fans

Ernest Guevara says:

Saw this on other youtube vids, but now Carey Holzman did this, ill be doing it.

kob4y Gaming says:

What if I live in an apartment ;<

mike maynard says:

this is how a man cleans out a computer.

Badda Bing says:

Leaf blower ok no problems. But… You were doing it on a paved parkinglot with gravel on top. Wouldn’t the leaf blower blow small bits of gravel onto the electronics?

Alberto Sanchez says:

Carey you’re the man! love your tips:)

Nemitx says:

Why not a hair dryer ?

noshah 26 says:

2 questions.. 1. that pc was running on beach or something XD I never had that much dust lol.. 2. does newegg sell a leaf blower XD .. I actually will consider doing this for my next cleanup

Orjon Zaganjori says:

Been using a air compressor for 10 years and works very well.

Eds drafts says:

Hi. Does it matter if leaf blower is mains or battery powered?

SeaJay Oceans says:

This is why i put my laundry, my dishes, the kids, and the dog in the back of the pickup truck and go through the car wash… 😀

Matlockization says:

Carey you look very, very polished. The wardrobe dept went all out.

JohnSTF72 says:

The “leaf-blower” way is actually very effective.You’ll be surprised to find out how much dust will come off your system, even if you think it’s relatively clean.And it *is* safe, as Carey mentions.

Japfan14 says:

To the peeps that are gonna clean their PC’s, Please block the fans so that i doesnt spin when you blow air on it. Because if it spins faster than the maximum speed, the fan may break.

Smooth Cannibal says:

i started using my shop vac a couple years ago. works like a charm. using the blower side of course.

Rizzles says:

Why is Carey even working for Newegg anyway? I thought he was a self employed computer technician and builder. Surely there arent any folks in Arazona wanting a computer built! I personally much prefer the omputer builds on his own channel

brianjirish says:

I usually get F2-F3 tornadoes around my area. Couldn’t I just strap down my PC out in my drive way and wait for that f2 to come on by instead of using a leaf blower? smh

Silvio Alcantara says:

lmao brooo…. the Metro Vacuum ED500P DataVac 500-Watt, .75-HP Electric Duster does the same…

cosmel villalobos says:

thank you cary , absolutely gold the info you provided!

David Keith says:

When your done doing the computer take it back inside,disconnect your dryer hose at the dryer and let er rip. Lots and lots of dirt,fuzz,etc in a dryer hose and sometimes the 4+ tube going through the wall. Good advice Carey……

Rikki Boodram says:

Carey, you bring up a good point on using a leaf blower. But when I think of spring cleaning my PC. Optimizing HDD’s and SSD’s come to mind as well as uinstalling unused programs to free up some space, running a virus scan too, etc etc 🙂

David Smith says:

Thank you Carry !!!
