    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 would recommend you to hire professional to do your job, there are many small ics installed on your motherboard you may harm them or destroy whatever you say.

    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.
