As you can see in the picture below, I've picked one of these but I'm not comfortable with the exposed backplate, I live in a very dusty semi-arid desert so the insides of my PC get very very dusty, should I worry about dust harming the transistors/capacitors or something? I know dust can clog the fans, I can clean them up every 5 months but I'm not so sure if it's a problem for the pcb itself

There's no particular issue with dust coming in contact with the PCB/SMDs, other than the added heat from the dust being an insulator.
Just be sure to blow out this back area whenever you do your normal cleaning.
