Looked at my temps 4 months ago when I cleaned it and marked the fan speeds for each game and they havent changed and my computer desk is fairly dusty around my monitor ....I normally clean everything every 2 months but is there actually any reason to if the fan speeds are staying the same and so are the temps?

Why would it be pointless to clean it?

I've seen some fans with old dust caked onto them. If it's there long enough, it tends to stick unlike dust usually does. For that reason alone, I'd blow it out once a month or so.

If your computer never changed temps, and you don't mind the dust and grime, no, there probably isn't a point to cleaning out your machine. But it doesn't really work like that. EVENTUALLY, that build up will cause a problem. It might not be until you're done with your hardware, but eventually it will.
