This can also be done whilst being in the normal upright position after all 4 of the 4.5mm Gamebit screws have been removed. Pull the top of the shell directly upwards and it should slide off easily.

Once the fan is removed, use compressed air to clean the dust off of the fan blades. It is highly recommended that you use a toothpick to prevent the fan blades from moving while cleaning. This will prevent accidental damage to the fans motor.
