1/2" horsehair brush and a box of Q-tips work wonders. Don't even think about using a vacuum cleaner. The air flow charges up the hose and can arc in to the boards.

I've always used an air compressor. When cleaning the fans, try to keep them from spinning too fast when the air hits therm.

Don't let the fans spin at all under compressed air.
