Ladies stockings or even Speaker cabinet mesh can be cheap and surprisingly effective in limiting dust.

I made some 'ghetto filters' for my case and while it didn't stop everything (nature of my case design), it certainly reduced the amount of dust getting in.

I heard this and have thought about it, but it's for me AND a client. I hate to go to their house with nylons. They might think I'm a psycho.

Nate,

For the client - I would fit fans and a filter, as this is the only available option, you could leave the fans un-powered, if them running would disturb your airflow scheme, you always have the option to power them up if global warming takes effect

One of the most amazing things I recall was not actually a pc but a remote electro-mechanical switch in an enclosure in Algeria. We knew there was a switch as the system was operating and the switch was shown on the drawings ...

.... We found it after removing about 18 inches of sand from the base of the enclosure
I spent 4 years in Algeria, mid-country, using and trying to keep running a lot of computers and electronics.
The dust and sand gets everywhere, and you don't want to know where that is.
