    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.
    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?
    Just means you will have negative air-flow. All you would need to do if you want better control of the dust is to remove a couple fans, turn them around so they are bringing air into the case and put the fan screws back in.

    Best to have some of those fans blowing right onto your components, like the GPU to help move the heat buildup away from the cards.

    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)

    Why not use an air compressor, I am using one of the weaker ones there is and its doing a great job and it will save me money in the longer run, buying compressed air cans where I am is rather expensive, I just make sure that I dont use the nozzle to close to the components,hold the fans downs and let it sit for a while before I plug it back in

    The problem with air compressors is moisture.

    When air is compressed the water in the air will condense and settle in the air tank and can be blown into your computer, which is a bad thing.

    The canned air you buy is put through a drying process before it's put in the can, giving you dry air.

    Thats why I let the computer sit for a while before I plug it in to get rid of the possible small water particles that might get on there, since the water does nothing as long as the computer is turned of and have no power, but I guess its how you want to do it, I did it to save money, and it can be used for a whole other things

    Thanks Alsisgevat ... btw, how far are you with your WC build ?.

    Well....I still haven't recieved my new chassis yet, so I had to put the WC on hold, asoon as I get my chassis I can order the parts, I wanted to order the parts first,seeing as I allready have a good idea of what I wan't, but after seeing some other WC builds, I desided to rather wait for the chassis,and plan acordingly.

    I have looked at that little gadget but wondered how powerful this little blower is.

    So, would you say it is at least as powerful as a can of compressed air.

    Thanks

    It'd be much better ...once your chassis comes, then it's time to design how you'd want your wc setup to be. Don't forget to update the picts lol ...
