Fan Filters Needed.. What to buy? - Page 2

post #11 of 16
I would recommend an air compressor, you can buy a small one that doesn't need oil for like 100-120$ brand new that will last for years. Just clean your pc every 3-4 months, it is working way i mean WAY better than those ridiculous small air cans that is a complete rip off at 10$ each or dust filters that clog up. It will make your computer look brand new. Here's an example when i cleaned my bro pc.



I previously used dust filters too but it didn't do much. So now i just clean my computer regularly, you don't need any water filter or anything on the air compressor, just make sure when you're done to purge the air by opening the valve underneath it to let all the condensation in the tank out.

I'm using the Silverstone FF123 and the FF143 on my intake fans. They're magnetic and seem to be sticking pretty good so far. They do have holes so you could use it with the fan's screws if you wanted.

My guess is the are the same filter material with a different frame & center design. I think they look nicer than the FF122 & FF141do.

Hmm. My case came with the FF142 and that is what I based my opinion on as to mesh or foam. As near as I can tell it uses the same mesh as the others.

Indeed.
I can see no reason they would use different filter mesh. thumb.gif

I recommend using panty hose before buying filters, because it will show you how much airflowyyouwwill lose (approximately). I have seenmany ppeople add filters only for their temperatures to skyrocket, because they were using "case" fans.

Use them for a week, take before and after pics of the inside of your computer, and use RealTemp to track temperature.
