Good idea. I have 3 grills on the side panel of my case, and they are clearly drawing air in as they are covered in dust. Should also help to keep the inside of my case cleaner. This won't prevent the mesh openings from being covered in dust, but it should prevent that dust from being drawn into my case.

I think I might have found a use for an old pair of tights (not mine, I hasten to add).

Alternatively, I might have a look to see if I can get any vacuum cleaner filters that might do the job.
I've now got the parts for the filter. They are a cut-to-fit vacuum cleaner filter (should be able to get 2 filters from that), a metal wall vent (with slider, which I shall remove to make room in the recess for the filter material), and some nuts/bolts to fasten it to the side panel of the case (on the inside). Just need to drill the holes for the bolts.

I was considering magnetic strips to hold the filter to the side panel, but couldn't locate any. I also thought of a wire mesh, which I would fasten by weaving picture wire through it and the outermost holes in the grids in the side panel. I rejected this idea on the grounds that it would be fiddly to install, and would not lend itself to the easy cleaning/replacement of the filter as needed (in addition, it would, in all likelihood, squash the filter material thereby reducing its effectiveness).

My solution, therefore, solves these problems. It allows the filter material to breathe, and it also makes for easy maintenance.

Walmart automotive section. $35.55 with sales tax.
Might even clean the van. Hmmm? Never mind that idea.

Sorry for the off topic.
This vacuum works great on cases, fan intakes, CPU's and video cards.
Suction is as good as the big ones proportionally with smaller I.D. hose and attachments.
I just finished cleaning my HAF.

If you don't need one fine.
This is for those who might be considering one.

I wish I hadn't already purchased my Oreck mini this looks to be a great little vac. I like how my Oreck is available with Hepa bags which help with dust out the exhaust end of the vac. I use Hepa filtration on my shop vac and you can't believe how much it stops exhaust dust.

Dwarf and any others this is what I purchased and then used higher quality double face tape to stick it down to the fabric.

It's not a vac, but a blower. You can find it other places but at the above link is the cheapest I've found.



I have 6 case fans + 1psu,2gpu. 230mm front,top,side,140mm&120mm on H70 and 120mm in the gpu air duct.

IownAmoneyPit,
Nice air flow with quiet fans drawing lots of air, then big air through the cooler with push/pull 120's and the 140 exhaust.

Is yours a four wheel drive version also?

You have to watch out for the bugs in the grill (front intake) after going for a spin.
