Default Dust...

Might sound like a stupid question, what do you guys use to clean the inside of your pc from dust? Is there anything out there that can prevent dust from growing, i guess, inside of your pc?

Yeah, I used cans of compressed air before they're useless if your pc is filled with dust.

Use a compressed air can, they can be found at an office max or office depot probably in other electronic stores as well.

buy some fan filters for your intake fans to help reduce dust buildup. a metal mesh filter will work fine, and if it's the right kind it won't add much fan noise
