Would anyone be willing to make me a side panel window for the 400R this spring?

It has good airflow if you add/upgrade the fans. The only good dust filter is the bottom filter for the psu and bottom fan if you add a fan.
I use a/c foam filter on the front, back and side intakes. I also have silverstone filters on the front 120 fans. I still get dust in the case. If i can figure out how to put the a/c filter foam on bottom, i will use it there also. I have massive positive pressure so i know im pushing out dust still. I see it collected on the INSIDE of the foam filter at the case cracks and holes. If you add and or upgrade the fans, the airflow in this case is unbelievable. I have replaced every fan in my case with high cfm high static pressure fans

What replacement fans should I get for this case? And how do I replace the filters?

I replaced all my fans with the corsair air series fans. I have 4 AF120 quiets, and 2 SP120 quiets (on the H100 radiator). And true to their name, this PC is dead silent. Under load in game I can still hear nothing. The sound of my breathing is literally louder.

Next step is replacing the rear exhaust with an AF140 quiet.

i have 3 cooler master silent 140mm, 2 on the side and 1 in the bottom
this in the rear bgears b-blaster 140mm, on the h100 fan controller
the 2 h100 stocks on the front 'helping' a cooler master blade master, all hooked up to the corsair case fan controller
2 excaliburs pushing and 2 bblaster 120mm pulling on my h100
