    compressed air is  a great way to do it  but be carful not to  tip the can  too much as they tend to spit  liquid out and its  not good to get it on ur cpu it  will freez the spot that it touches and  temp. devations are not  good for chips
    Possibility only towards the end of can use (but why tip the can), interminent bursts works just fine

    If you have the time to spare, and the ability to remove the fan, i've found a damp cloth is better and longer lasting than the compressed air, took me an hour to clean last time i did a HSF assembly, but it was worth it
    So how did you get in between the heatseak fins? Using the method provided by Soul814...
    take out ur fan AND BLOW!!!! lolz blow the dust off
    ...

    no pun intended........everyone has there methods and I'm sure they all work fine, guess it depends on how much time you want to spend cleaning and how much time you want to spend away from here

    Vaccum with brush attachment is best. Compressed air is messy and just blows dust all around. It doesn't really remove dust properly.
