I've got a small compressor with a regulator... It's even portable.

I'll never buy another can as long as I live.

Well I am cleaning this case for a friend of my dad becuase his cpu is overheating and then bogs down really really bad so I replaced the AS5 and then I also cleaned it out but I really don't wanna lose 5 bucks on him since I am saving up for a new case.

I never clean my PC. When I open it I just blow a bit with my mouth, that's all.
I once cleaned my MMX (sig) entirely. Took everything out of the case and cleaned everything.

take it outside, prop it up against a brick..., remove the side...
