Remove dust without opening the case

I am having a lot of dust inside my case and want to remove it. But is it possible to remove the dust without opening the case as I don't want to void my warranty?

That must be joke I think. Isn't it?

There is no way to clean the dust without opening the case other than either by using a compressed air or with the help of a small vacuum cleaner. You can also use a cloth. However all this will not definitely remove the dust completely from your case if using from outside the case.

Small dust is no need to worry about, but if you have thick layers of dust, open the case, and use the vaccum cleaner.

Just make sure you do not touch any of the parts inside with the vaccum cleaner and you have no risk of static electricity.

Using compressed air is the best way, but you will have all the dust on or around your house so stay outside when doing this.

I agree with you!
I suggest you to simply use a quite big brush to remove the dust from your case when you open it! But be carefull while using such brush. I think vaccume cleaner is not that good idea!

I have used compressed air cans to blow the dust and according to me its simply waste of money.

IMO using a brush isn't the wisest idea.

When the units discharge compressed air, a small amount of moisture is also discharged which isn't good for your motherboard.

Compressed air

THe moist only happens if you do not hold the can straight. Once you tip it a little, it allows for the moist to come out.
