Hi rmw020

I have a dust filter on the front air intake of my case and its surprising how much dust/fluff it stops.

I have considered using some of this for filters:

Woven mesh pvc heavy duty BOAT SCREEN by the yard - eBay (item 190408234158 end time Nov-19-10 06:34:21 PST)

I figured that it would be easy to wash, and cheap to replace if needed. It wouldn't light up, but I wouldn't care for that anyway.

Hello there fellow Windows 7 user, i could imagine how much dust and fluff could be cleaned out of a filter through time.

I have mesh material which i shall be using for another intake fan.

Thanks for replying folks.

Correct you are. Also stockings and hold-ups would suffice.

Or any good bit of mesh. Always good to test it though.

I ditched my ghetto pantyhose filters for some DEMCi Flex filters a couple of days ago - all I can say is that I hope they as effective with dust as they are at reducing airflow

On the plus side, they look better than pantyhose...
