Not sure if this has been asked before (I'm new on here, sorry). But my miners are gathering a lot of dust inside. Does it matter? Do you guys vacuum them, is it safe to do that? If you do, how often do you clean them?
Thanks!

You could vaccum it, but it would be better to get some compressed air and blast it, and then vaccum it.
You should do so since dust prevents the miner from releasing the heat, and it may cause it to overheat and lower the hashrate.

If you get alot of dust on fan and airway no it's not good.  As suggested best is a can of air spray it out.  If you are  able to open case and spray out is best.  With this you can spray out side and not have a lot of dust going through machine.

Compressed air is better for cleaning computers and electronics - vacuums create static which can damage electronics. Even if you have a normal air compressor, that would work great to clean out miners. I have one and it works great for cleaning all sorts of PC parts, plus it's cheaper than buying compressed air in cans.
