Are you a compulsive cleaner or something? Do you spring clean your room every day as well? :p

I clean out the fans (and filters if there are any) whenever I have the case open for something else. Most recently would have been last week when I replaced my sound card, before then about October when I got my 7800GS.

I air clean my filters every month or so as I see the need. I don't clean the inside too often as the filters seem to trap about 80% of the dirt/lint. This reminds me that I should clean the inside again though as it's been awhile.

I usually clean each time I upgrade something. Also my CPU fan gets clogged with dust about every two months so I clean it then too.

I clean my rig whenever it needs it, not by a schedule. It all depends how quick it gets all dusted up. Last time was a few months ago. It should probably be cleaned again.

Whenever I build a new rig!

Or at a LAN party. That way the dust settles on everyone else's kit, not in my room.

Lol that is messed up :P I usually clean mine whenever I have it open for whatever reason. LANs are are usually spot of interest for the computer, so sometimes at those. Not enough though.

With the amount Of mula I just Dropped on my new rig. A grain of dust starts making me twitch and foam at the mouth,maybe it'll pass. This is sad but it gets daily inspections,and cleaned if need be. I know I'm sad.:(
