    Peaceful it's really clean and I love it.........but the huge CM......yikes! Not my cup of tea, but with the side on I'm hoping you don't even see that and all you see is the great lengths you went to clean, clean and more clean !
    Outstanding, excuse me while I go and kick my Thermaltake case !

    Can anyone tell me how to position the fans, to help prevent dust gathering? the only 2 fans i have for intake have a filter. im sure there is some kind of scientific way to go about this. the picture below is my current set up. (please excuse the MS paint mock up)

    I like to have more intakes than exhaust to keep positive air pressure.
    Good example here...link.
    Keep your case off the floor get a small stand, it will cut the dust by 50%.

    Cool link. So all Id have to do is flip both my top 200m, so they could serve as intake? I got the second part covered, a case like mine would Never touch the floor.

    Positive airflow is the best to keep the dust down. Add up the CFM from you intake fans and just make sure it is higher than the CFM of the exhaust fans.

    Still a good idea to open up the case and blow it out with a can of compressed air, not an air compressor though.

    Hahaha ... thanks, i'm thinking of making full side panel window from fiberglass and use the existing side panel as a molding, but i'm not quite sure whether it could be as clear as acrylic though.

    whoa, im screwed? according my math (useless) the CFM of my 2 120 intakes is 94. however the CFM of my exhaust is 379. this is bad? i never really paid attention to CFM this, CFM That. i was under the impression that more fans = Cooler . am i missing something here?

    More fans are cooler (if setup right) but we are talking dust here, Go with Positive Air Flow and you will stay less dusty. Clean your filters (if you have them). I myself use compressed air about once a month-ish. Keep off the floor. My case has wheels on it that give it a few inch's but I also have it on a 8in stand. Cooler is a by-product of all the above.

    Soon my case will be Noc'ed up. 3 120mm and 1 140mm should arrive next wed. Got good prices at Directron.com $16 and $23 respectively. Will be interested to see if they are indeed quieter then the Tri-Cools (damn the color! :))
