Default Cleaning a Rad

Ok I'm sure you went "phew not another one" when you saw the title :p..

I'm more interested in finding out the best way to clean dust of the fins area of a rad, a can of air does a fairly good job, but I wanted more gone.

I currently have my triple rad attached in a HAF 932, it's attached from the inside directly to the case and the fans blowing air out, now if I put dust filters on the fans, will that help some how?

yes dust filters will help i have a same case with the rad in the same place and the only way i clean my rad is with air cans and i pull the my loop apart. just blow through.
