Thanks for the reply. I appreciate the fast response.

What I was thinking about was using a vacuum to suck from the bottom (entry) vents. Perhaps at the same time, blowing air in the top (exit) vents.

I'm not even certain this would be necessary as the temps and fan speeds are still nominal even though I've had the sysem for almost three years. Still, preventive maintenance is usually cheaper and faster than repairs.

Unfortunately there is no effective way to blow dust out of the iMac without disassembly. Blowing air in through vents would just agitate a limited amount of dust which would likely just re-settle inside the computer. Display removal actually isn't too bad with these machines and our display guide will show you exactly how it's done!
