Hello, I have been getting high temps on my Graphics Card lately and I was thinking of cleaning it, so I removed the graphics card and as I was looking at it I noticed there was a ton of dust and I was wondering how the hell am I supposed to clean this? this is my graphics card.

Can someone tell me how I am supposed to clean this thing? blowing compressed air into it will make the dust go deeper into the card and I do not think that you are supposed to vacuum out graphics cards because that creates a lot of static and can fry my card, if anyone can help me I will be very happy!

-Thanks! :p

I think compressed air is fine. You can't really go "deeper" into a card that's open on all sides. Just blow from one side. That's what I do.
