Today I got to take a look at a Fractal Design 120mm case fan I installed in 2016. To be honest, it has lived a hard life.

So, as you can tell, all of the foot traffic on the carpet will cause the computers to suck up all of the dust, dirt and lint and dirt that is kicked up. These poor computers during their
I must say I am impressed with these fans. The amount of crap this poor guy sucked up and was forced to chew through (hair, lint, etc) was impressive.
