    You can use a can of compressed air or an air compressor, using short bursts to avoid moisture coming out. Never use a vacuum, the static field from it can destroy your computer. If the GPU needs cleaning, it's safe to assume you need to clean everything. Focus on the CPU, GPU and PSU, these and the fans tend to have the bulk of the buildup. Also, be sure to do this outside as a cloud of dust will form and you probably don't want it spread all over the house.
  2. Martell1977 - The PC is one week old so it doesnt need FULL cleaning. CPU cooler is an H100i so That rad isnt dusty....yet. The PSU is at the back and the fan doesnt spin as it is in hybrid mode. Ill use compressed air but I dont want to do it outside cause i live in the UAE and its sandy which will make it MUCH MUCH worse. What is the point of cleaning it with air if the compressed air will just like blow it on to the motherboard?

    Use a high power vacuum cleaner.

    You will start by cleaning the card, but will want to spray around it after to remove anything it puts on the motherboard. You could always remove the card before cleaning,if not, jst watch for dust deposits forming and clean them off as well. Depending on the design of the cooler, a good amount of the dust might/should go out of the back.

    well for such new hardware cleaning the dust filters(i suppose corsair air has) is enough. well it realy depends on the speed of the fans running which are plenty in that tower. if you want to increase the times between cleanings ,try to keep the intake fans as low as possible and increase the exsaust ones. since you havent done any o/c yet.
