  • DIY Dust Filters for PC?

    I cheap case from Newegg over a month ago: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...FU-d4AodcAcAAw

    It came with 3 fans (2x120, 1x140). It has mesh/filtered front w/ a removable filter on the bottom for the PSU. Today I noticed that the side panel has a little bit of vacuum as it was ever so lightly sucking a piece of paper against the vents where you can mount optional fans. I am curious if anyone has any suggestions on using some sort of translucent mesh so I can still see the components inside, but at the same time filter dust that tries to enter the computer?

              So you just wrap your fans with it?

                There are more expensive filter material out there, such as some of the ones listed here: http://www.frozencpu.com/cat/l3/g47/...ers-Page1.html. You gain the ability to wash them without replacing them entirely and you can cut and shape them to whatever port you may have.

                I'd probably stay away from foam as much as possible. Very hard to clean completely, relatively expensive to keep replacing, and more restrictive when it comes to airflow than other filter material (as the foam used on my NZXT H2 case proves).
