I've been running this particular mobo and CPU now for over 2 years,
and... no noticeable dust to speak of.  And it's sitting on a carpeted
floor. It's a simple matter to make filters for case fans and to install
in such a way that there's always positive air pressure in the case.


It is important to realize that any lock can be picked with a big
