I'm planning to clean my PC since build up of dust is very visible already, I've had the computer for almost 6 months now, aside from using Compressed air, would it be okay to use a Paint brush instead? (Concerned about giving my PC parts static shock)


Hoping to hear from your guys Soon.......

Compressed Air from a Compressor is always a bad idea due to the possibility of moisture droplets. Also I would recommend using a can of air instead. A paint brush dipped in rubbing alcohol will be a good way to clean the nicks and crannies a can of air has issues getting in.

so it's safe to use a paint brush without worrying damaging my computer parts, forgive my ignorance but what is a can of air?

I use a soft car detail brush to clean the heat sink and fans as well as compressed air.
In the beginning there was the command line.
