Tip of the Month January: How to clean your bitcoin ASIC miner


Dust and dirt can slowly build up inside your ASIC miners. This can, in turn, decrease the performance of your miners. Luckily, there is an easy fix: Cleaning it! But what is the best way to do this?

Compressed air is a great way to clean your ASIC bitcoin miners. You can either use a can of compressed air or a compressor. With the compressed air, you can displace dirt and dust easily by just blowing it away. For example, you can use it to clean the fans of your machine. With a few puffs of air, your fans will be free of dust once again. 

If you see that the dust and dirt is stuck due to humidity or any other reason, you’ll have to dismantle the fan and brush off the dust manually. When taking apart your miner, note that you’ll need to be extra careful due to the sensitive components.
