Although like the fractal mine doesn't have a filter for the side fans. When I was choosing between the cases I had the same selection and eventually narrowed it down to 400r or 690, went with the 690 because it was cheaper and available at the time (400r was only just coming over to the UK)

EDIT: I'm sure you could always buy aftermarket dust filters if you wanted additional/better ones.

Pets and location of your tower will play a big role.

I haven't had my pc for that long (1-2 months) but haven't noticed any dust in it yet. I would say you would be fine

I think that you will be very happy with whichever case you choose out of those 3 (they are all, in my opinion, great cases) and at the end of the day if dust does prove to be a problem just add more/better filters.

Thought about your fan configuration yet? Negative pressure would be where you will see the dust get sucked in more. The way the bottom filter is held in is by some simple pieces of the case bent down, so its not air tight there is a slight gap between the case and the filter. The top filter is very nice with its own housing, if you use those as an intake i wouldn't worry about that.I would be more worried about the side fan than the others for dust, if you use that as an intake.



This ^
thx man i think i will be getting the arc i will only use the 2 front fans and the top fans and i saw many mods on this case specialy on the side window mod i will be doing the same thx again + REP
