Be *very* careful using an air compressor inside computer equipment. You need to have something to remove moisture from the compressed air (preferably more than one between the air source and outlet) or it will blow water onto the parts. I use a compressor on a daily basis in woodworking, and without this, you will
get excessive moisture coming out the end.

There's only smell if it's not electric.
