It's finally time to reopen my case and really give it a good cleaning. I want to do this as safe as possible (for the pc.)

I'm looking for tips and what I should buy to deep clean every bit. (not just compressed air blowing.)

I mean things like what can I use to remove stubborn dust caked on fans, what kind of thermal paste should I replace my current with? How can I remove as much dust as possible from the heatsink over the CPU.

I am attempting to return the PC to a like-brand-new state for cooling efficiency.

Memory: Crucial Ballistix 32 GB (2 x 16 GB) DDR4-3200 CL16 Memory
