The sufficient air flow wouldn't allow much dust to settle [depending on where you put your case of course]. Well..then it depends on how long you keep it on to. Just my own opinion. But if that's the case, you should get a case without all the holes. There are some really nice ones out there. Look out for other member's cases. Unless there's something that really allures you about this case Make your best choice

It's not the settling of dust that is the issue. It's the issue of where the dust is being directed and collected. Even with good airflow of positive/negative pressure.. you will still have good buildup of dust on the CPU Heatsink, GPU, PSU internals. Running things filtered isn't as dusty but, none the less .. it's still there. Imaging how things would be unfiltered.

I believe that the majority of all the really expencive cases have filtered intakes.

CMStacker 830 for example shows a hell of alot of possitive pressure if you add all the 120mm fans for its option. Unfiltered Positive pressure is the worst thing to do to internals just for the fact that you are shoveling dust inside the case. You will notice on that case that every fan is filtered.

An up date on the "Deals Section" post I created. It's still $115 at excaliberpc.

Would like to mention as well that these Provantage guys, although I never shopped or heard of them before seem fairly large and just as organized with delivery as NewEgg. They even have how many of the items they have left in stock. Seems like they have many regional warehouses because I got my ground shipped order in 2 days.

I ordered one from..TECHONWEB and I find them pretty good too. http://www.techonweb.com/products/pr...aspx?id=D03493
It doesn't look reliable but it is. very big company. Over 24000 reviews on pricegrabber so that's why I bought it from them. Came pretty fast in retail box for less than $115. It's $99 + shipping. Just offering another good option.

If you are dead set on filters, then I would throw out the Antec Drive cages and get a few of these...I use them often and they are easy to clean. The down side is that it is only an 80mm fan. The up side is that it only takes up 2 bays.

the more i think about it the more i am disscouraged in buying the 900. I really dont want to include additional hardware to the case. It should already come complete as is. Spending $30 or even less just on foam filters is going out of my way to correct something that should have come that way in the first place.

Im going to stick with the P180 instead. Sorry
post #68 of 139
Thats why they have options out there. The 900 is designed for gamer pc's with 2 vid cards and more than likely some overclocking action so its designed for maximum airflow, thus the lack of air filters and huge fan options. I'm sure they thought about those filters, but in the end they are seriously cutting into your air movement, so they left them out.

The clear side with holes and possible 120 intake fan shows that noise level wasn't their biggest concern, although I still find it more than quiet enuff for me. The p180 is a much sturdier design and quieter with the insulated side panels, but the airflow is not quite as nice. The case also has a much more subtle look with the door and filters, where as the 900 is audacious with open grill design and clear side panel.

For any regular PC user the I still recommend the P180 all the way. Both great cases for different reasons. As I see the 900 dropping in price I expect it to be somewhat cheaper than the p180 as the p180 just seems more expensive to make with how sturdy its built and the amount of metal in there.

I agree...I just can't stand cases with doors....

I am not familiar with the filters but..a little analogy here.

The 900/no filters ..maximum air flow
-with dust build up over time, which shouldn't be a lot, will limit performance. Can't be a lot can it?

now..
w/ filters ..limited air flow and hence performance overall. Unless water cooled..

Makes sense?
