At the minute it looks like I'm out of this which is gutting because I love the challenge. The fan on my power supply has decided to not start up when I'm powering it on so I'm not risking it at all.

Edit - Never mind, crisis averted! apparently a rubber holder for the fan came off while I was cleaning it and had got stuck against the fan, stopping it from spinning.

Oh definitely, the guy from Antec wanted me to RMA it and it took me half an hour to get every cable out until I realised I had cable tied the Molex cables to the case (I have a non-modular PSU) so had another look and found the rubber mounting wedged against the fan, just my luck haha! Just buy a can of compressed air, you'll be done in 2 seconds :p

i cleaned mine out a few weeks ago, and phew was it time for a good dusting, righ now the air coming out the back is cold again where it was semi lukewarm beforehand, aslo the fans are way less noisy which imo is better for their motors and they have a lifespam due to moving parts so i could advice to do it
