"cheap"? And you could always make one wish screen mesh from a hardware store if you are going for "cheap".
My real question is....why for the top and bottom? are you in-taking from the top and from the bottom? I live in an old apartment and it gets dusty, like real annoyingly dusty and my 540 case hardly has any dust in it. But to each his own.
Filters can be found here but they, imho, take away from the good looks of the case.

Women's hosiery can be used to make cheap filters. You just need to make some of kind of frame to hold it in place.

Anyone know why you would want to strangle the airflow of your computer with a filter instead of just cleaning it periodically??

Live in an arid environment where sand in the house is commonplace and then get back to us.

I do, I'll still never use a filter. They are more hassle than benefit, and since most folks put them on, the figure they have filters, so they don't look at them much, it compounds the issue. Sand, dust, animal dander and fur, my wife's hair, I've got it all in my home. It takes me 5 minutes to clean out my STH10 once a month. And it's free, and doesn't neuter my airflow.

Does anyone know about mounting a XSPC Photon 270 pump/res combo, 240mm and 360mm inside this bad boy? I wasnt considering the length of the 270 when I ordered it mad.gif

Since you got the photon, I'm assuming you wanted to mount the res in the board side of the case and not the psu side, correct?

Will it not fit on the rear panel between the window and GPU's? I've seen several pump/res combos mounted there in this forum thread.
post #6039 of 12460
Yes that is correct. I was thinking of mounting the 140mm exhaust on the outside or horizontally mounting the 270 on the bottom?

I bought some of these filters, they are thin, easy to cut in the size you need & very cheap compared to those expensive Demciflex ;-)

Edit: I used 1 for my PSU side and 1,5 in length for my top. Good luck!
