Does anyone have any idea how to dust of the Kuhler 920 when compressed air isn't working/enough? (preferably without removing it from the CPU, only the rad itself)

With a high end case like yours almost all of the air being pushed into the machine will be filtered. You would have better results with a standard setup of top and rear exhaust with front and side intake. Hot air has the tendency to expand and rise, cool air settles toward the bottom naturally. That is why most cases are designed for top exhaust and bottom intake.
I'll try both intake and exhaust with my upcoming front fan, then I'll see what works best with my setup ! Thanks for the advice thumb.gif

You remove both the fans and compressed air doesn't do the trick? Because that's how I do it. Granted I use an air compressor because being a carpenter by trade I have a few of them, and I keep one at the house for cleaning. One advantage of an air compressor is that it has an adjustable regulator so I can control the PSI. I usually set it around 50 PSI to dust my computer, but I have cranked it up a little higher to to clean the radiator because it is tougher to clean. Try loosening the dust with compressed air and then vacuuming the other side. Hope that helps.

Not trying to tell you how to run your system or anything but take this diagram as an example. This isn't your case, but thisis how cases are typically designed for optimal cooling smile.gif

before i'll do anything too stupid, this is the only one i have access to (i.e. home) Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

will this work? (it has the upper nozzle thingy which by logic "should" work)

lucky you tongue.gif

do you think that reversing the fans and going full (2500+ RPM) would do it?

I have a Dyson just like that, my wife uses it around the house. I just sucked all the crap out of an air filter with it this morning. It has a suction almost as powerful as my shop vac. Give that a try!

I used a vacuum on mine but it was removed from the system at the time.
