I use that air in a can for electronics. Just did it yesterday and it didnt hurt anything. I dont see why a small vac wouldnt work either.

Anyone try opening their PS3 and vacuuming directly? That would seem more effective. My PS3 is 14 months old, so the warranty is expired anyway...
How hard is it to open up a PS3?

Use a Vac at the outlet (fans) and use canned air at the inlet at the same time , thus forcing the dust to lift and get sucked out . I did his with an Xbox 360 for a year and when I had to open it to do the X-clamp mod there was hardly any dust at all inside .

I've decided that I'm going to open up both PS3's, and try to clean the dust out from the insides. I've watched a couple of youtube videos about opening up the PS3, and feel like that part of the equation won't be any big deal for me.
The big question I have though, is that the youtube videos that show people opening up a PS3, when they get the outer and inner lids off, they don't really show anything beyond that. Wouldn't the dust be under the BD drive and the other main components? The PS3 has a main fan right? Wouldn't the dust primarily be on that fan? But I think to get to that fan, you would have to move the BD player around, and the one thing that I worry about is that I will accidently disconnect something. I wish there was a youtube video that showed the person actually cleaning the PS3 from the inside, and using the compressed air and whatnot. All of the videos that I've seen, basically stop once the person has both lids off. They don't show anything beyond that, except maybe putting both lids back on.
