Cosmos-1000 dust problem

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
My cosmos builds up dust in unwanted areas due to it's negative air pressure, any suggestions to have it neutral/positive air pressure? I wouldn't mind if it would only build up dust around the intakes, but it builds up around the rubber gaskets on the side panes, I/O ports, cd drives, etc.

I also think the negative airpressure is intensified because my PSU draws air from the inside of the case, and not the outside/bottom. Sound is a big issue, I would really like for it to be the same sound level as it is stock.

Only way to get positive pressure inside it to have more intake than out take. Perhaps adjust fan speeds down on the outake and up on intake if you can do that with those fans. Also you could buy high cfm fans for intake or add more fans.

and make sure all the intakes have dust filters on them, although be careful not to restrict airflow too much if you make your own filters.

Has anyone had the same problem? What fans should I buy for the intakes to get positive air pressure?
