post #2331 of 4610
HI guys,
I'm about to buy a mid tower and can't decide between the Corsair carbide 400r , NZXT Phantom 410 and the Coolermaster Strom enforcer.
I heard there are'nt any dust filters in the side and the top of the panels and dust could come in and the front two fans air is blocked by the the front HDD cage which cannot be removed.
I hope I can get some good features from the 400r here that are absent in the other 2 cases smile.gif

Thanks in advance.

The most important locations to have dust filters are for the intake fans (front panel, side panel and the bottom location).
The top and rear locations are for the exhaust fans.

Many cases already have dust filters on the front and the bottom locations.

You could also buy dust filters for the others fans like these from Akasa:

120mm - Akasa GRM120-AL01-BK

140mm - Akasa GRM140-AL01-BK

Speaking of dust, here is the best investment I ever made:

http://www.amazon.com/Metro-Vacuum-ED500-500-Watt-Electric/dp/B001J4ZOAW
(There is a good video of in action if you scroll down a bit.)

I read about these over on the HardOCP forums. No more canned air for me. This thing works great!

According to the profile, you have the 500R. Just take a ruler and check it!
