Yeah, a makeup brush isn't going to dislodge anything, but static buildup could be a concern. Unless you've got especially nasty/sticky buildup (smoker in the house?), just the compressed air should be fine.
No smokers. Just light dust build up. It's a shame the heatsink/fan can't be oriented down, since there's plenty of room between it and my video card. If I could position it in the opposite direction than the guy in the video, it would be aimed right at the rear exhaust fan, anyway, The way he installed it, it's just blowing hot air onto the DIMMS, and the front of the case.

HAHAHA!!! That's awesome!
I'm gonna wait to do this until the extra RAM shows up, since I have to take the whole computer apart (I forgot about having to install a bracket on the back of the mobo). Worst case, I stick with the 8GB I have, since they are in slots 2 and 4, so the one closest to the cooler is free. If newegg would be willing to take back an unopened pam of RAM, and give me store credit, I'll just save up for 2 8GB DIMMS, instead of the 4 4GB sticks I'll have soon.
