yea it probably would, but it depends on how thick it is, if its dirty clean it and that will increase the airflow as well

For inside the pc i just use a hoover on a low setting so not to damage anything. Then i go around with a paint brush and get the dust free then hoover it up. Works great, just dont use a stupidly powerful one lol

Call me weird, but I love dust. I don't know why. I just don't like it in my computer. I need to take canned air to it.

no but you have to do it in a certainn way otherwise all you do is reposition the dust , i use the compressed air cans they sell for keyboards theyare fine

also using the hoover can damage internal components as the hoover can release static charges

also too much dust can make fans noisy as they need to spin harder as the dust can clog them up and slow them down
