Thanks guys! Looks like I will be either getting a air gun and moisture trap or that ED500 as my dyson pet hair vacuum can't blow air out as far I can find.

Wait.. the vacuum thing is sucking up the dust? I just didn't see that when I envisioned "blowing out dust" /facepalm.

Any advice for cleaning the infuriating GPU fan design on the 580?

No its not a vacuum its a blower, they took the motor from a vacuum they make and reversed it. It only cost around ~$45 and it works great. I have an air compressor too but by the time it takes to get it out and the tank filled I am dont with cleaning with the the metrovac, plus I have a small compressor and it wont blow air for long and needs to fill the tank. The metrovac is great and can move more air then compressed air, and it pays for itself since compressed air can cost up to $10 a can. This also doesnt loose pressure after using it. I also picked up air purifier at Home Depot for $24 on clearance and notices a good drop in dust. Get the metrovac blower you wont be dissappointed.

Even with dust filters you are going to get dust inside. Also the side fan has holes that are rather large to allow for better GPU cooling so it doesn't filters dust as well as you would like.
