Talking How do you clean your PSU

I have an Antec NeoHE 550 and It got funky because I put a cord from a worn down pc to see if a hdd worked from the worn down PC. How do you clean the inside of the psu? I basic cleaned anything that could be cleaned with soap and water casing, wires, fan etc. Yes I did let it discharge for 24 hours something I learned from Johnny Guru.

I'm sure there are more aggressive ways for those who like to tear things apart, but if you're looking to basically get the dust out you could just use canned air and blow it out from every opening you can fit the little red tube into.

Just as above - buy some canned air, or use an air compressor. PSU will be like new in no time.

I've found that a high-powered air compressor works wonders. Blew a ton of dust out of a VX550, not to mention making a five year old case look brand new.

ShopVac, canned air, ShopVac... in that order.
