Glad I ain't the only one with dust issues, just paranoid that one day it will get clogged up one one of the hottest days during the summer. Doesn't help that the room its in also is the hottest in the room =/
Ah well, least I got into the habit of airing it out ^_^
When I do my cleaning every 6 months I have a shop vac and bristle end specifically for it with a bottle of rubbing alcohol and Q-tips for the fans. My hardware looks literally brand new when I clean lol. When I had a water loop I flush my system too and dip the rads in hot soapy water so the caked on dust gets cleaned off and let it all air dry for a day. For the H50 I simply dip it in the soapy water and use a hair dryer to dry it off before using it again. Since I technically never had a warranty on my TT PSU I take it apart and clean it too. I had to resort to using the reverse blow on my shop vac to clean the HX850 I had our carpet vac sucking all the air out the other end to catch the dust and create a high pressure tunnel to get the dirt out. Since we usually have a dog and Mariah has long hair I have to deal with that too which can be a real pain when hair gets wrapped in fans.
