Good fan filters?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hi guys, I'm looking for some fan filters for my computer due to my dorm room being rather dusty. Is there a certain type of filter that's better then others? What filter type obstructs the airflow the least while allowing the least amount of dust in?

Any help is much appreciated

I haven't had the chance to use them myself yet but I've seen these recommended around here.

They also have them in 140mm size and maybe others. I plan on grabbing some for my Source 210 this coming X-mas.

Silverstone also makes a spiffy looking filter.

I used a 120mm demciflex and it sucks. Well, it doesn't let the fan suck air...

All filters restrict air flow no way around that fact. I like the silverstone 120mm. IMO good compromise between airflow and filtering.

Try useing the dryer sheets from you laundry. They work well and if you use the scented ones your room smells good.

I second that, but from --> http://www.koolertek.com/computer-pa...m-162p2320.htm

Shipping is a bit better price. I like that one because its thin and does a good job in keeping the dust out.
