Fan Filters for Antec 900

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Where can I buy 120mm Fan filters for the front fans? It's really dusty in my case and I have tried to clean the window with a cloth but it just makes scratches. Where can I get some scratch remover/polisher for acrylic online?

Well for starters to wipe down the window you could try using a microfiber cloth with a little bit of water so that it won't leave scratches; instead of just using a normal cloth/rag.

Two easy and cheap ways I know of making a fan filter are:

1. Take a kleenex/facial tissue and separate it so you have just one of the plys, then put that between the fan and wherever you're mounting it. If it gets too full of dust you can just trow it in the garbage and get a new one, and one tissue is usually two or three ply'd so it's not like you're using up a whole box of 'em.

2. Take a pantyhose and stretch it out onto said fan and cut it to the right size. Again as with the tissue idea put it in between the fan and whatever you're mounting the fan on. Costs a little bit more money but you can get different colors to suit the color scheme of your rig (lol), or just black if you don't want to notice it much. One bonus of the pantyhose is that you could wash it down to re-use it a couple times, you don't have to throw it away after one use, cutting down on the cost over-time (since you don't necessarily have to put a new one each time).

Thanks, I think I will try the tissue method. Now I need to find a way to remove the scratches on the window. When I turn on my cathodes, The scratches show up and look ugly.
Is this stuff going to work well?

I've never used that specific product but I guess you could give it a try.

One method I know to remove faint scratches is to use a small (teeny weeny) amount of automotive car wax and wax the window/area. The wax should fill in the scratches making them somewhat less noticeable, but if you put on too much wax it will just make it look worse.

For the window I'd just use a lint-free rag. Can get at wallmart for like 5 bucks... or a lens cleaning/microfiber cloth will do a good job too.

The filters are more complicated with this case...
You don't have a lot of room to mount a filter in front of the fan's so you really need to use just a filter with no supports.. I tried just cutting a generic filter I got from lowes down and using cable ties to put it on, but didn't like the look in the end (with the led fans it looked "raggedy")and elected to just clean it out every month or so.
