Got bored this morning, so I opened my eMac to vacuum the dust out of it. Not much dust at all.

The good news is all the caps on the logic board and power board are perfect. No swelling or leakage. Woo!! Weirdest heatsink I've ever seen for a processor though!

Caps are not a problem with your model, only the 1.25GHz eMac was affected. eMacs are pretty weird machines period!

Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
