If there's one thing that can cause havoc for anyone with a computer, it would have to be dust. Chances are if you've had your computer for more than six months there is some level of dust building up inside. While dust under the couch may be bad to look at dust in the computer can cause problems. Dust always settles on the regions which have the most air flowing over them. That means expensive heatsinks and power supplies are the foremost target. What can dust do to you processors heatsink? Well, over time the dust builds up and acts like an insulating layer, blocking air from directly contacting the heatsink's surface. In extreme instances the dust can build up to such a high level that it fills up the spaces in a heatsink and prevents it from doing its job. The effects of a dust build up are not always easy to recognize. But you may find your computer starts to run a bit hotter than it did previously. Dust can have an adversarial effect on fans if it manages to find it's way to their bearings. Dead fans in power supplies are rare by they are common. While a bad fan in a power supply is not going to immediately kill you computer, you may smell the flux as it starts to flow around the components not being cooled. A dead fan on top of a processor can mean system hangs and in the worst case scenario, a fried chip.

We know that actually the technology allows us to enjoy very high speed hard disk drives with incredible storage capacity, but the quality of this important component is not the best, even from famous manufacturers that produce them with cheap materials. Typical signs of an approaching  hard disk drive failure are the so common blue screen of death and classical messages like "NTDLR is missing", etc. So, It´s time to save your valuable information in order to avoid an unfortuate mistake and to make the change in time.

Memory is a little complex component, since memory has quite a few factors to picking the right set. First off you want to find out if your motherboard supports DDR, DDR2, or DDR3 Memory Standard. Memory Channel comes next, this needs to be the same for both the motherboard and the memory. Memory is very picky, as any little problem or mis match will make your computer not boot.
Once you've found your memory standard(DDR, DDR2, DDR3) for the motherboard, and the speeds it supports(measured in MHz, 1333MHz, 1600MHz, etc). The next thing you want to know is how much memory your motherboard supports. Usually a DDR2 motherboard holds around 16Gbs, and usually the higher end Intel DDR3 motherboards hold 24Gbs. It just means that it won't support any more memory than that even if you can fit more memory sticks. So don't waste your money on 24Gb of memory if your motherboard only supports 16Gb total. Next is the memory channel. This is somewhat tricky to find out because DDR2 is always dual channel, and DDR3 can be either dual channel or triple channel. Basically the channel is how your memory is read and plugged into the motherboard. It must be slotted in a specific pattern to unlock the channel effect.
