Keep up the good work, really liked your find with the SATA cables thumbsupsmiley.png

Thanks Mike. You know.....if I sold fan filters, and saw someone with 50+ fans in their case, I think I would probably join the community and make my first post something like that one also.

But in all truthfulness...I'm struggling with whether I want filters or not. It really doesn't take long to clean a box up if you have some compressed air. Would be nice not to have to do that as often....but with filters, you would still have to clean those regularly. Not sure cleaning filters is any more enjoyable than blowing the box clean. And filters definitely reduce air flow.

Would love to know which direction all of you have gone with fan filters. Yes...or no? and why?

Chris, you owe me a new F5 key; I have worn this one out.

Everything is looking great. I love the attention to detail on this build. For most people the red sleeve would be close enough, but no, you go and dye some...

Regarding fan filters, I recently took mine out. They were a pain to clean compared to using my MetroVac on the fans / rads and really got clogged up fast. OK, so a little more dog hair finds it's way into my case, but it is very easy to blow it out.

Ha! I guess that's only fair. I'll have an F5 key powdercoated white with some custom crimson dyed numbers on it and send it your way. thumb.gif

That's kind of how I think I feel about fan filters also. Anybody out there really love their filters?

More than fair, and from you I would expect nothing less than a custom powder coated / dyed keycap... tongue.gif

Keep up the great work, rest assured that we are certainly enjoying watching it unfold.

Whoa custom length SATA cables? Oh my...
Seriously, your love for detail work is stunning in every way. All of those tiny little problems and things along the way would've probably tired me out not even halfway through (and TBH I wouldn't even have dreamed of attempting a build like this one, not even if hell froze over tongue.gif). Yet you keep going strong with this one. This ranges smack there with some of the insane build logs over at bit-tech for me. A few years ago there was someone who cut a case almost entirely out of some sort of wood and it looked amazing, sadly I can't find the log anymore, only some pictures, He didn't paint his PSU's though and IIRC there was no white fitting porn involved. thumb.gif

Thanks for the kind words, mosi! I'm having fun with this build...not getting tired of it at all.

I think Electrocutor is planning some custom built wood panels for his case. You can check out his build log here. Should be pretty sweet.

I don't use fan filters personally...just a shot to the system with canned air once a month.

Those SATA cables are the *expletive deleted*(rhymes with hits) biggrin.gif

I don't go through the trouble. If it's not a filter that came pre installed on my case, I don't bother adding any additional filters. I periodically take a can of air to the case and that does just fine. I find that usually most filters added as an extra never really look good, and seem to be more of a PIA than a benefit (more time to clean and impede airflow) 2cents.gif
