So. I bought a can of compressed air, I blowed thoroughly in the input
vent, it definitely made some dust go out the output vent (= between
the keyboard keys), but the cpu still overheats even when idle.

The fan appears to be able to spin at reasonable speeds, since it
reports 3900 RPM at some times. Based on previous experience, if the
fan sensor is as accurate as before, this report should be taken as
exact. However, this fan speed is only reported for a very short
amount of time, as if the cooling policy specified to turn the fan to
full speed only between 60 and 62°.

Question is not so much if it doesn't overheat anymore but if it takes
longer. I'm not using the compressed air as I find it's pretty much
impossible to really clean the parts properly with it. It just doesn't
generate enough force. Especially in spaces that are enclosed a lot.

It's just easier to take it apart. You can find service manuals that
guide your step by step through the disassembly on the notebook's
manufacturer's web pages.
