How do I keep out dust?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
There's not too much dust in my case but my fans are accumulating dust on the blades. I clean it out like every 2 days (its not much but its annoying).

Are there any good fan filters you guys recommend (nothing too fancy, budget is like 2 bucks for a filter)

For uk ,scan has like 1 gbp per filter.

Also, steal some of your moms or girlfriend's pantyhose. It gets the job done in an ugly and humiliating way...

A little technique that I did was adding a lot of fans to my case. If you have an insane amount of airflow in your case, it will not allow the dust to land anywhere.

I know what your thinking though "won't that just bring more dust into my case?" well I the fans mounted on like the back side of my HDD cage and the back side of my 5.25 drive bays.

Oh and I also removed all unused pci slot covers so that it can push the dust out.

Edit: Whoops, I read it wrong. haha. I thought you said that you're getting a lot of dust in your case but your just getting dust on your fan blades. Yeah, don't listen to what I posted lol.
