    I have a late 2014 iMac Retina, and out of curiosity I took a look at the bottom grill, where the fan takes in air from and it sure looks like it needs cleaning. How do you guys clean/remove the built up dust? I am hoping I don't have to do any major work, as I do not want to break the iMac as I am out of warranty.

    I'm not sure there is a viable way of doing it, short of taking it apart, which is not something I'd recommend.

    Cut a hole in it, but your vacuum cleaner next to it and turn it on. Otherwise, tear your iMac apart.

    I will leave it be until I start having issues. Thanks!
