Besides using air to clean the fans, you have to get underneath the CPU fan and make sure the heatsink fins are clean. I usually take the fan off to ensure this. Also grab the heatsink and give it a gentle back and forth wiggle and make sure it's secure on the CPU

You're just removing the fan, not the heatsink from the CPU.
the heatsink sits on top of your CPU most likely looks something like http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16835103031. If you're not comfortable i personally wouldn't recommend touching it, blow it out yes, but the cpu is very sensitive, pretty easy to mess it up. the box you're talking about is the power supply, kinda seems strange to me that it never spins, but gonna let the experienced folks you're already talkin to field that one
