It's very dusty where I live. Even with filters on my case (which I vacuum from the outside a couple times a week), I still open the machine up and blow it out no less than once a month. The longer the dust stays in a machine, the harder it is to get out.

Dust just happens and this is why I've moved away from fine air intake filtration as it impedes air flow. I'd rather just blow out the case and clean the fans every 2-3 months but you have to know your environment, if heavier dust, pets or other then cleaning sooner is always good. It amazes me how many issues are caused and solved (laptops) by someone learning that computers are just little room air cleaners with a heater!

I wonder if a pressure washer aka "Karcher's" would work better than just a standard hose pressure?

I don't often turn a machine on its side. This one I did and found a World Record class dust monster (too big to be a bunny) on the PSU intake, it's bottom mounted. That thing was huge, wish I'd snapped it too. If you have a bottom mounted PSU, check its intake grille of filter if you have one.
My giddy aunt Gary that is some load as you know I am a filter freak and all my bottom mounted ones are dust filtered - you know our method of any filtering anyway
