Each case has a different way of getting inside of it.

Once it's open, don't touch the interior components unless you're grounded. Personally, I wear a pair of rubber surgical gloves.

Use a can of compressed air that's designed for blowing the dust, hair, etc. out of the case. Don't use blasts of more than a few seconds, or else you risk getting condensation on the components.

Correct flavallee,note the surgical gloves!-me too.I use a very soft new paintbrush kept
especially for this-do not use a vaccume cleaner or air gun.Before entry touch the metal
case often to discharge your static & don't touch any components directly.If you are
fortunate there'll be 1 or 2 thumbscrews on the back of case,which will slide off towards the
rear.Mark case with tape on one corner to assist reassembly.

Cracking open a case to clean it out is also a good time to add more RAM - if that computer needs it.
