    Question Cleaning an AIO Cooler

    Can I clean an aio cpu cooler without having to remove it? Can I just use compressed air to clean the fan and radiator? Does cleaning it regularly (once a year or more often) allow me to not have to do more intense cleaning which might include having to remove it?
