My R7 3700X is almost one year old. My case fans and the Prism Wraith cooler are caked with dust. Regarding the CPU cooler, can I just undust it with an air compressor without having to remove it from the motherboard?

 

And can I just clean the case fans while they are still in the PC case?

Depends. If the air compressor is of high PSI, I would remove it to reduce the risk of accidentally blowing off some SMDs, or the small capacitors and components that make up a large part of the motherboard, they can be fragile and blown off if using a lot of PSI to blow it out.
