Hi, I've ordered an ASUS ROG Strix GL502VM (with the GTX1060), and I was curious of how often I should clean the fans/vents and what steps/precautions I should take when doing so in the future.

This is my first 'gaming' laptop so any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time.

Never. But the Dell Inspiron 15 laptop I'm currently using has served me well for the past 4 years without any issue.

I was just under the impression that gaming laptops would need more diligent maintenance due to how hot they can get if dust builds up in the fans/vents over time.

Ok. Should I air-dust the vents, the fans, or both? I have never done this before and I just want to make sure I don't destroy the laptop when I try to clean them.

Standard 1 year.

Will I void the warranty if I remove the base to clean them?

And should I stick with the air-duster, or would a vacuum be too hazardous to the laptop?

So basically, I should wait at least a year before I actually start cleaning the laptop from the inside.

But, I should spray the vents with an air compressor every two months or so to prevent excessive dust build up until that point, right?
