Dust in computers can cause system failure

 
Research has shown that dust is the number one cause of computer hardware failure. This simple fact doesn't generate headlines like viruses and spyware, but its even more important. Modern computer chips run very hot, and require efficient cooling. According to Intel®¹, a Pentium 4 processor at 3.40 GHz dissipates 115 watts and has a maximum temperature of 163 ° F. That kind of heat requires the constant cooling of a fan over a heat sink. If that fan should stop spinning or slow down because of dust and dirt, the processor will overheat, and the system will fail. Data loss and permanent damage may occur.
