Computer cleaning services

Recommended Posts

Hiya,

 

my PC is 5 years old and getting very loud. Whilst I have blown dust out before, I think the fans and some other parts all need stripping down and cleaning, which I am reluctant to do myself.

 

Any good recommendations for people who would undertake this sort of job and see if I can get this PC running a bit quieter?

 

I am based in S10 so the more local the better.

 

Thanks

Hi, I used E-Hallam on South Road, Walkley, near to Asda. They did the job for me, plus updating etc, and I was satisfied with their work.

How much quieter? and how much are you willing to spend?

There is so much methods you see:

 

Cleaning a PC is cheap.

 

Normal re-paste for the CPU and Under-volting the CPU and stress testing will cost a tad more (depending if your motherboard supports this).

 

Then theres:

Deliding your CPU and replacing the CPU IHS with a .925 silver IHS lid, and putting thermal grizzly liquid metal on the CPU die, Silver IHS lid and heatsink while having a protective barrier, and replacing the thermal pads for the GPU with AlphaCool 17W/mk thermal pads will cost a lot more than a standard procedure.

 

Or maybe go next level and have a fan-less heatsink riding a bareback CPU die (intel only) without the normal/silver IHS lid, with some quite Varder fans with rubber washers and internal sound insolation foam.

 

There is so many options you see.

 

It can cost you anywhere between £40 to £800.

If you only want to spend under a £100 then go to a local computer shop. If you want hi-tec then find a geek pal ;-)

 

I hope this helps.

Hi Russ, I'm only the other side of the valley in Shiregreen and I'm around this week. I could come round and we could do it together if you'd like?

 

I know letting a complete stranger into your house isn't the first thing you'd normally think off but I'm a digital champion for Age UK and have some official identification I could bring with me.

 

I have all the tools we'll need and can bring them with me.

 

Cheers

Will

Thanks for the recommendations - I tried calling both so far.

 

Core - very interesting stuff - I think it just needs a clean though so am looking for people's recommendations for good work previously undertaken
