Lian-Li Filter

How many of you will admit that you do not clean your computers as frequently as they deserve?  My hand is up!  Mostly, it’s because dust always gets inside and I need to take them outside to blow them off.  However, I don’t even clean the fan filters as often as I should.  The reason?  They’re a pain.  I have […]
