lol a straw eh?

Yeah, removing it shouldn't be necessary..
A can of air or an air compresser would be good....

hint: don't turn the can upside down and if you use an air compressor, wait a while before turning your computer back on...When using an AC, chances are there is moisture in the air it's blowing.

I know this is an old thread but I just saw it and this is a very common problem. I run a call center that sells satellite tv and we have about 175 computers that get very dirty with all the human activity. (Dust is comprised of mostly human skin cells) I take about 15 at a time out to our loading bay and take off all the covers, I keep one large fan in the back to keep the stuff from blowing back in and take a leaf blower I bring from home to clean them all out. It has been the fastest and most effective cleaning job since I spilled coolaid in my case and had to wash it out with water. I use the same method for my rig at home in my garage.
