Default Hookah Smoke + Computers

Hey guys I was just wondering if it was bad to smoke around computers? The reason I am asking is b/c I was just sitting here smoking and I noticed that sometimes the vent on my comp would suck in a little of the smoke. Has anyone heard of hookah smoke ever having a negative affect on computers? Thanks for the replies I look forward to reading them!

No, it will not cause any problems.....the only thing i could forsee is if you are running watercooling and you have a radiator, and even then you would have to be blowing 100% smoke into the fan for quite a few minutes, and that would only change the temperature a little because it is slightly warmer than the surrounding air....lol, i used to blow smoke into my computers intake fan in the front and it would come out my fans on top...

I'm sure a little smoke inside the fans wouldn't harm your PC any. Maybe if you're blowing all the smoke into the vents and often the actual fans might get a little brown-ish, maybe possibly maybe. However... if you have a laptop i wouldn't smoke with the hookah sitting next to the laptop, obviously, cause that can lead to certain disaster haha.

Once after i finished smoking i took a nap in front of my laptop with the hookah next to it, woke up and knocked the hookah over on the laptop. Coal ash (not hot thank god) on the keyboard and water all underneath it. Took a long time to clean up :P

i honestly dont like smoking around my machine and if i do i blow the smoke away from it. if you do it a lot you may have a little bit of issues down the road but i dont think it would do a whole lot more than your normal dust will but even dust will lead to less cooling efficiency

It can't be as bad as the normal dust that gets sucked thru the computer constantly. My hookah lives right next to my computer and I smoke 3-6 bowls a day.

Just don't stop smoking it because if your computer is addicted, quitting may lead to withdrawal crashes

Yeah it can cause issues eventually but computers are fairly tough as far as that is concerned. Worst case scenario is you have to replace a few fans. The circuits should be fine. Fans are fairly cheap. No big.

There was a video on YouTube of some guys who turned some kind of mp3 player into a hookah. It didn't do anything but make the LEDs inside look awesome.

20 seconds ago I wrote about this problem in a reply. The fan sucks it in, the screen gets dusted by charcoal and my keyboard gets dust black.
Get a long piece of pvc and make a long hose to keep your hookah far away.

I work in a steel mill. You should see some of the PCs that have come from the lines back from repair!
