    You're not sure what canned air to pick? Any of those products from a PC or electronics store will work fine.

    A self powered, thrift store tire inflator and its high pressure nozzle attachment works for me.

    I lucked out because the internal 12 volt battery was still good.

    I've been using a compressor ( adjustable air output ) to clean the interior of my computers for the last 25 years.... NEVER had an issue... Like anything else... be careful.
    Hold any fan from free spinning ( common sense )

    I usually take out the gpu and use a vacuum. Using filters on the air intakes and taping over unused vents and holes help to keep the dust down alot.
