No vacuum cleaner. The high velocity air generates static electricity, Safest to use canned compressed air. Loosen dirt/lint with a small brush. Clean between the fins with toothpick.

I have found that one of those camel hair brushes that the ladies use to put their face powder on is ideal for picking up the fine dust that accumulates round fans and other electronic bits. Have a word with you wife/girlfriend and see if she has an old one you can have. Failing that, go out and but one, they are not very expensive.

Te reiterate, no vacuum cleaners.

I feel that compressed air works best. Brushes can't get inside the power supply, for one thing and really can't reach everything. They are better than nothing. Either use a compressor or canned compressed air. Be aware this is messy. I suggest you move the tower to a location where the dust won't matter.

Blow out the power supply from both ends as well as case fans from both ends. Don't go inside optical or floppy drives.

No vacuum cleaner.
