I opened the iMac
To Don's surprise, I disassembled my 4+ years old iMac (Intel Core 2 Duo 2.33GHz, 24-inch, white) today.
Why? Like many 24-inch white iMac owners, the iMac has suffered some sort of graphic issues (mostly due to heat issue many people believed). That was one of the main reason I decided to get the lower-end Mac Pro (the lowest option of 12-Core at least). To my expectation, many internal parts of the iMac is extremely dusty. Well, I can't do much about that since this part of Sydney is very dusty, unlike beautiful Boston or picturesque Quincy.
The photo was taken after I have vacuumed the dust, mostly among the vents and I also used and air-duster to remove the dusts in the cooling fan. I can't believe the amount of dust!
I need to thank iFixit for providing easy to read step by step guides to make the cleaning possible.
BTW, did I tell you that I haven't put back the iMac? Well, I will put it back when I have time.
Unlike the gadgety Don, I still do not own any soldering equipment and only recently acquired a digital multimeter. (to Don: Antony is poor.)
