I think we have enough Antec 900 case owners to make an accurate poll...I clean [vacuum] mine atleast once a week [for now, ahaha]. I just can't stand the thought of having dust decreasing the heat dissipating ability, and it just looks nasty.

Oh, no air-filters installed either for me.

This is a how often you DO clean your case, not how often you think you SHOULD clean!

Usually whenever I start to overclock and when it goes bad I have to open up my case to move jumpers is when I do that. Usually couple times a month

I don't usually clean my case, since most of the dust accumulates on the front intake grill. I just peel it off. But whenever I work on my computer, I clean it.

Mine is very rarely together for more than a month at a time, lol. I have had to clean it 2 or 3 times since I have had it. I am always changing something, so it usually gets done then.

I also have 2 cats and live in an older building, so ther eis always crap on the grills.

Between every 2 weeks to every month. In the summer I'm a bit more anal about it cause it is crucial to the temps. If I have compressed air around I'll just give the fans a spray every week (they seem to build dust up on them about that often).

I've had my rig you for 2 months now and I haven't clean it yet. Once I get my water-cooling parts I'll be sure to give it a good clean and I will install fan filters as well

I clean it every time I reseat the CPU or take the motherboard out. So basically once a month.
