    What I usaully do every 2 to 4 weeks I take the fan filters out and take them out to the shop and blow them out with the air crompressor until clean (Last time I threw them in the sink with some soap and put them in the dryer and clean as new) . Then I'd take some canned air or a air compressor on low and lightly dust out the computer already put together as is.

    *ONLY WASH FAN FILTERS, NOT FANS OR COMPUTER COMPONENTS*

  4. I have put my fans in water before and they have worked fine afterwards. I have even put my graphics card's full heat sink under water (excluding the part with the thermal paste) and after a day and a half of drying, I was able to assemble it back and have it work fine. I also put my 120mm fans under water, without worry, and have them work fine afterwards.
