Default Disgusting Computer Award

Disgusting Computer Award

And the award for the most disgusting computer of the week goes to this guy. I wouldn’t recommend viewing these picture if you just ate. You’ve been warned. Blame Izzy R. for this one.

Wow that's pretty nasty. I couldn't stand having a computer that looks like that (I go into it too often for something like that to happen anyway ).

I've actually seen worse. imagine all fan covers completely covered, heatsinks so clogged that the only way to clean them is a butterknife, drives that you have to unstick to take out, and the powersupplies I've seen... atrocious! I lived in a rural community, lots of dust anyways, take that to a pc running win98 with a full time smoker... and I was the first one to clean it prolly ever! the things you see as a tech are purely amazing... I've seen house fans blowing on an open case, powersupplies taken apart with small desk fans blowing on them, jerryrigged pcs that had parts propped up in them, and ooo epic win... cats+smoker+dusty road+years of not knowing to clean=up to 2 inches of gunk

I'll take a vid the next time I clean out a particularly bad pc at work.
