Here's an idea that you could try. I see by looking up your case that you have two 12cm fans mounted on the side panel. What you need to do is to visit Maplin (I presume you have a store close by) and purchase two fan filters, Air Filter for Fans : Cooling Accessories : Maplin Electronics, and attach them to your fans on the inside. I know that the arrangement should be so that the air flows firstly through the filter and then into the case via the fan, but they will also work if arranged so that the air flows through the fan first and then through the filter and into the case. I use exactly the same method with my front intake fan on my system.

Note that if you don't have side fans fitted, you can still mount these filters to the side panel. To avoid spoiling the looks, fit them on the inside.

I have the Thermaltake V3 Black, I use add on filters as well, they work GREAT! And what a cheap investment for such an expensive investment.

No problem. Sometimes it pays to think a little outside-the-box as it were and realise that if a filter is used for air flowing into a case that the said air will flow through it regardless of whether it is mounted before or after the fan.

Please consider this as an option and then the filter is easier to clean! Way easier to clean !
I cheaped out and made my own with window screen and sticky back magnetic tape and they work great.
