I service Government computers and at one time before, I came across a PC that looked almost like the one in the pictures from below.

I wonder how much of a performance increase did cleaning them up make :P

In the case of the smoker's computer, it was too late to see. The nicotine had clumped the dust in the processor's heat sink, causing it to overheat and die :( . It is very hard to clean computers like this one when they come in. The nicotine and tar from cigaret smoke make a gummy mess that attracts dust and doesn't let go. We can't just blow them out with an air compressor like we do with the ones that are full of dust and/or roaches( :o Yes, people have brought in computers infested with roaches).
