Dust filters-Silverstones

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
The silverstone honeycomb is the best looking one that I've seen.

Does anyone have experience with these?
Are they ridiculously restrictive?
Is it impossible to see LED fans behind these things?

It's hard to get a good idea from pics on frozen cpu for example.

from a aesthetic point of view, the silverstone looks the best. however, if you want performance, you may want to look into a wave mesh aluminum filter like this

I have them. I dont consider them restrictive at all. Here is a shot with an led fan.





I dont have any recent pics. Currently got my hardware but its not in the case.

I have them as well. They do a pretty nice job, and they do filter at least 3/4 of the gruff that would go in without them. And even after being a bit more than dirty airflow is not affected by a lot, unless they're truly clogged.

For

they do beat cleaning the computer every couple months or so.

About LED fans, dunno. None of them are LED fans, but my case does have a lot of blue LEDs inside (PSU being the brightest) and they still show a bit.

Thank you, that is EXACTLY what I wanted to see and hear

They won't be on my rads just my case fans which I'm pretty good at blowing out dust regularly. I contemplated putting on the rad fans themselves since they have better static pressure, and not on the case so you could see the LEDs. Besides I can always take em off if they dont work but looks like thats what I'll go with.

cheers

No except for the 200mm on top all the fans in the case are Yate Loons. Side panel is a 120mm High speed 2200 rpm model kept tame by the fan controller. Front is a 140mm Medium speed 1400 rpm.

The light pattern happens to all clear led fans when the light hits the blades. Intensified a bit by the time lapse shot.

I'm thinking of phobyas but considered sickle flows

Curious though, have any of you used those filters in conjunction with Nexus Fan mounts?
