Mac mini (Late 2005) Processor Heatsink

I’ve used Mac mini’s a lot in my business and personal life. It’s great to be able to put such a small Mac wherever you want it and they rarely if ever have any problems.
In fact the only problem I’ve ever had with them is that they can end up getting a bit dirty especially if one has pets such as cats or dogs around.
When this 1.33GHz model tarted having some stability issues I disassembled it and cleaned it. The heat sink was almost completely blocked by a combination of hair and dust that fell away during disassembly.

Cooling fan on a barely used, original iMac

Cooling fan on a barely used, original iMac

Back in 1998, a guy I work with bought himself a brand new iMac. He fiddled around with it, but soon realized that computers weren’t really for him so he tucked it in a closet and forgot about it. I convinced him to bring it into work so I could have a look at it.

Did I mention, Bob didn’t use it that much? There’s not a speck of dust on this fan. It is the cleanest computer I’ve ever worked on!

We have 3 computers…

All Macs.

We have an ipad, an itouch, and 2 iphones.

We positively love Apple!

This is what you’ll find us doing on any given day.

Naturalist is researching world leaders for a history project she’s started.

Golfer is finding out more info on penguins. He loves him some penguins, which I find utterly adorable.

Sassy is playing Minecraft. Have you seen it?! it’s amazing, and we’re addicted! www.minecraft.net

I am apparently doing everything but dusting the living room table, which needs it!

Inside The Case, Before Polishing.

Inside The Case, Before Polishing.

Normally I just wipe inside the case with a lint free cloth and brush the dust from the hard to reach places with a paint brush, but I had an Idea and decided to experiment. The inside of the case is coated with a metal oxide to help stop interference, over time the metal gets tarnished and becomes dull. So I decided to polish it with some metal polish. I used a lint free wipe to apply the polish and another to buff it up.

This is the case before I started polishing.

This is the case during polishing, pictured is a area un-polished so you can see the difference.

Everything Back Together

Everything Back Together

One of my Classic II’s has been playing up recently, so I decided to give it a overhaul.
I striped it down, to clean out he dust and fluff that it has accumulated over the years.

Pictured here everything put back together, apart from the case.
