Got my rig finally set up, I'll take some pics tomorrow I've been tinkering with it. I think I did fairly good on the cable management.

hey guys.

Ive had my system running for about 2 or 3 weeks now and WOW it gets dusty. I have a fan cable tide at top in the top 3 bays as well as the fan that comes in the case at the front. but the really noticeable dust is at the top where I have 2 exhaust fans... Im assuming most of this dust is coming in through the sides where theres no grills or filter.

Foes anyone know where i can get 140mm filters from. I dont think the wire mesh things will do much good and I don't fancy cleaning this thing every 3 weeks.

Cleaning the CM690 should be a snap.... usually I just blow on the filters I'm done.... takes like 20 seconds.

Oh yea and wipe the mesh, another 20 seconds....

Edit: BTW, I dont even use filter except on the bottom one to keep the carpet out.

maybe its just my room, having an ashtray near something thats recirculating close to 150cfm is probably part of the problem.

Any idea where I can get 140mm filters?

Ouch mate. That secondhand smoke can be killer on a PC's lunges (AKA PSU, GPU, CPU, etc.)

Best way to extend the life of your PC would probably be to step away for that minute or two.

But that's a non-smoker talking to someone who's probably had 'the habit' for years and has always done it that way.

Hey guys thanks for the replies.

Yeah I could make some, I like the coffee filter idea but I think it would be a little restrictive. I would prefer not to make one, its a new system that looks nice and im basically crap at making things, thye never look how i planned.

Yeah ive heard smoke can be a killer but ive never understood why. the things have HS on them and i clean them often enough. but yeah ive had "the habbit" (im under no illusions its an addiction but i enjoy it, everyone has a vice or 2).

Guess theres no pre made ones. thanks for your time guys. Rep for all.

John
