Cleaning out the dust from an Intel NUC

Hey all

Following on from this thread which is now closed:

Is it recommended to hold the fan to stop from spinning at all, while using an air duster?

I’m happy to open the NUC but not sure how much further dis-assembly is required to get in there for a good air dusting?

How did you do it @thyname . Was there any particular angle that worked better to get the most dust out? And how many cans did you need? A couple?

And any other tricks to it, that avoid potential damage.


Just one can. And not used in full.

Turn it off, and blow through all vents. That’s all I did. Not scientific at all

Cheers. Plenty of dust come out of the vents after air dusting?
