Best way to clean your PC from Dust

Tear them all apart, use pressurized, non static air, and then change the thermal paste and pads on the system.

 

2nd best? Just omit the full teardown, clean the CPU coolers and the GPU. Dust everything off with pressurized air.

I can vouch for this, but if you're just looking to maintain a single PC then a $6 can of compressed air is probably more efficient than spending ~$90 on the electric duster.

I do agree. Nothing worse than getting past that halfway point on those cans of duster though.. You are lucky they are only 6 bucks where you live.. They are about 10 bucks and tax here. If you use one a month that adds up pretty quick.. especially if you eat at your keyboard 😄

There is a little hole on the nozzle that is installed on the unit in the picture.. I put a little piece of duct tape over that.. 👍

"datavac" is the trademark for the product itself, made by Metrovac, who insert "vac" in a lot of their products.
It's still clearly branded as a Duster, in big lettering. No worries of anyone mistaking it for a "vacuum".

Also, technically, a duster is an inverted vacuum, since it sucks air from the bottom and expel it from the exhaust.
