While in the Persian Gulf, dust was an insane problem. I had to ensure my systems were cleaned out every three to four days, lest we have equipment break on us.

Here in the pacific northwest, it's not so much a problem, not until summer anyway.

Home dust is never a serious problem until around June or so. And then it's really pollen and not dust. I will probably take the canned-air to the innards of a system once every six months or so. Even then it's more preventative than it is 'reparative'. I've only ever seen one system that was so caked with dust that it caused a failure (power supply). And that one took years for it to get that bad.

It's horrible for just about everything. Over the years, that tar and nicotine oil coats everything....EVERYTHING. The memory of cleaning up the house to sell, after my Grandmother died, has kept me from ever starting.

And I constantly have to admonish my Father to keep from smoking around his computer. A constant struggle.

The most problems I have with dust are with the fan on my video card. For some reason, that video card gets pretty hot, and the dust that collects inside the fan casing has a tendency to stick. So cleaning the dust out of that fan is a top priority, but the dust in the processing and case fans is also important. Dust in general is evil for your computer if left for llllloooonnnggg periods of time without clearing.
