If you're one of those people who want to take really good care of your 360, then this is the Instructable for you.
This is my first instructable, so please give me some feedback on how I did or how I can improve.
Step 1: Gathering materials
Here is a list of materials that you will need for the process:
Nyko Intercooler (EX model)
small screwdriver (the ones for glasses usually work best)
Step 2: 360 Dusting
Take your can of Compressed air, point at the 360 as shown in the pictures. Only give bursts of air as this is more effective than holding down the trigger. Holding the trigger down also creates a layer of frost on the outside if your aren't careful. If the bottle does get cold enough, then the air pressure will be cut down to less than 10%. The main targets are the vent holes and the cracks between the 360's case parts.
Also, you should think about getting that dust out of the disc drive. Even though you are spraying the dust back in the disc drive, it is also coming out of another place, because you have so much air pressure. The disc drive is sealed up pretty tight, so you can guarantee that the dust is not getting inside of your 360.
The AC adapter also has vent holes and a fan inside of it, so don't forget to dust the vent holes on the adapter.
The dust that you blow off will not enter your system, it only bounces off of the plastic it's sitting on and gets into the surrounding air.
Step 3: Polishing
Polishing is not difficult on the 360. Just polish the parts that are shiny, such as the power button, disc drive faceplate, infrared receiver, and if you have one of the earlier models instead of the new ones, the side of the HDD. You can find a polish cloth at your local convenient store for less than a buck.
