    Is there a way to SAFELY clean the internal fans without opening the machine?

    and would EXTERNAL fan setups aid in cooling?

    No you would have to open the machine to clean the fans. Normally you would use a can of compressed air to blow all the dust out of the fan.

    And you could install smcfancontrol and make the fans spin faster and circulate more air if you have problems with heat.
