I keep an air filter near my desk as well, and though it seems to help a little, it doesn't eliminate dust completely--at all.

Just an observation, but we are coming out of the summer months. Has the ambient temp been higher?

That's something to bring up as well; my machine runs around 60 or so at home and only 50 or so while at school, due to the colder classrooms. Right now I'm in a coffee shop and it is a comfortable, 80 F degrees in here. Machine is at 67 C.

I'm in Florida BTW; later in the year and the beginning of next when it cools off, I'll be able to just run everything without AC or a fan and have cooler temperatures overall.

My CPU is at 52C with ambient at 77F (it's probably cooler but i don't have something else but the ambient sensor of the iMac), it's odd that we go above 77F here, I'm in Guatemala, C.A. it would be way hotter but where i'm at is near 6000 feet above sea level (1880m or so)

Dust sucked from the fan inside the screen?! No way... When you remove the glass the dust could remain inside but not from the fans during normal use, the fans are inside/rear the lcd panel and the glass "close" it from the rear, i've never hear someting similar (yes a lot of people have found dust inside the glass but there is inside from the first start, not after 4 months)
urgh I guess your new to imacs then ? because i've seen plenty of imacs pre this generation that had dust ingress between the lcd layers due to bad sealing of the lcd panel, its often described as a static smoke like effect which creeps across the lcd, cleaning the inside of the glass doesnt cure it, because airflow and dust how somehow manages to penetrate the inner layers of the lcd, perhaps by the tape seal not being perfect or failing over time, they seemed to have fixed this in the newer imacs, but yes this was an issue.
