    Question Dust Filtering

    Yo Modders,
    I have a Coolermaster Centurion 5, which is a very airy, porous case. Sadly, while it is ice cold, this means it's quite vulnerable to dust infiltration. Does anyone know of a material I can buy in sheets like metre squares to put over the intakes that will filter dust but not affect air flow too much or increase temp horribly? Cheers ta

    How about the speaker grills / covers you find in cars.

    Most garages sell them in circular shapes (perfect for fan holes) and you should be able to cut these down to rectangular shapes.
    Woohoo now Assistant Manager!

    Get a pair of your momma's old tights and stretch them across the intake (seriously!) works like a charm

    It does indeed, but there isn't one on the open bits on the side pannel, most notably over the CPU air intake duct - uh, hello, bad idea Coolermaster
