Don't forget to take a look at the Corsair 650D case. It's a great case, side mounted hard drives, etc. I personally don't like these enormous cases as they end up taking too much space and hardly ever get filled to near capacity.

My personal case is an Antec P182, and it's extremely quiet, and pretty much dust free inside (love that), but it's bigger by far than I need and my next computer will be in a smaller case for sure.

I use womens anklet stockings which come in black as a filter, they come with elastic fitted to them and they just pop over the fan and the elastic holds them in place.
They are very cheap to buy and do not restrict the airflow

Hum well have just looked the review in Youtube for the HAF XM and at that price $149 (here) and the PSU bottom dust filter which seems to be the fly in the ointment - which I can leave out and place an outside filter on instead.

Oh and yep kodi there are lots of cheap alternatives to the expensive ready made ones - I just like experimenting.

Outside and accesible is the way to go. On my current case I have to remove the hdd cage to get at the front filter because its about .70mm to close the fan assembley. Pita...

I too took some pantyhose and constructed filters out of them. I used cardboard to cut out templates to put over my input areas of my case and cut out windows in the cardboard and covered them with the pantyhose. They are working very well. This is on the inexpensive case that I used for my server recently. My nicer PC's have cases with dust filters.

Yep another cheap material is the polyester wadding that is used for upholstery. I use it mainly in my tropical fish tank in the over top filter but it would be just as easy to get the right thickness or even split the wadding down the centre and again to get the right thickness.

It's cheap and you can get all sorts of different sized "meshs". Now you can either wash it and let it dry - real easy and quick and if you are worried re the static then just use some of that anti static fabric spray. Or just throw it away my experience it doesn't last too many washes so you eventually have to throw it away.

However my favourite is still that Organza - if only I could find it in black - no not to wear cos I know what you're thinking LOL!!

With steel cases I like to fab my own filters from fine mesh window screen materials also available in several colors. I put double face tape down then lay a sticky back magnetic strip down on all four sides and viola.

They are easily removed and then cleaned, filter well but don't impede air flow as much as a super fine mesh. I wish I could mount them on the front dual 120mm intakes but on my case it's all plastic. I was thinking of doing and dual Velcro but then you're dedicated as the Velcro is a semi permanent mount to the case.

Pretty cool linnemeyerhere you sound like a bit of an experimenter like myself don't know about you but it's almost like an adrenaline rush eh?

I'd like to get hold of some of that sticky sided magnetic stuff too as I can only find the non sticky variety.

Am about to experiment with Velcro too but have got to work around the finish side first
