Get the fans that the case is meant for. The standard Cooler Master Red LED fans. Click this link:
The HAF X should already come with dust covers all around!

1) Does anyone own an XSPC kit and have a HAF X

2) Does anyone know where I can buy another PSU cover (it's not on the CM parts store)

It has filters on the intakes. But to be honest the only filter that does anything is the front one. The side filter is more of a gate. Blocks big things, but it surely doesn't filter out dust. So I added pantyhose around the fans to filter out the dust because I was tired of dust getting into my computer. The top and rear fan do not have filters as they are exhaust. Since my rear is intake now I added my own filter to it.

Also go with the fans that were suggested. Great fans and quite

Thank you for the response! How clean and neat was the pantyhose filter technique? Would it be better if I picked up some cheap filters? I just don't know how to go about finding something that would fit or what the dimensions have to be. Sorry for being such a noob, maybe stuff will make more sense once I have the case in front of me.

Also, do you guys all just use the 3-pin fans or have you found any 4-pin fans that work well? What is the main advantage of having a 4-pin fan? Thank you!

It's a bit spendy but completely worth it to buy the DEMCiFlex filter kit. I have the original 932 kit and it's a Monster for keeping things tidier than running without filters and considering the life expectancy of these HAF cases cheaper on cheaping out with Hosiery which gets more and more expensive since it's ladies wear.

Thanks for the tip -- how much did your DEMCiFlex kit cost you? How many filters were included? Thanks!

This is what you're looking at price-wise.


Here is the manufacturer's website if you want a lil' more info/requesting a manufacturer price quote.

I bought a set for my HAF 922 a few days ago, and was truly surprised how effective they are. Mind you, it's not a HEPA filter or any truly micro-particulate filtering kit, but it works beautifully at controlling the majority of dust. They are also very slimline (around the edges) so it seems they blend into your case very well.

EDIT:
Here's a pic on the 922. The top one looks a little dented thanks to me mangling it when I took it out of the package.

Looks great Jest. I'll be making sure to get my mom to get a set for her new case once she gets it. I think that she's still gonna go with a 912. We're a HAF family it seems.

You can find them in the Filters section at Performance-PCs.com

My kit cost me less because it didn't have the top filter. But I added 2 graphics card filters to keep dust to a minimum in my 5770 as well. So I think ~$50 is what it cost me. I'd have to dig back through my records to be sure.

Your kit I believe would be $70. The really nice thing about them is they're easily rinsed with lukewarm water and left to air dry are ready to go around 15 minutes. If you shut your system down you can do your maintenance before your personal downtime and you're ready to go when you boot up. I'm going to get another kit so I can swap mine out without any downtime at all if I choose.

I do recommend getting a 140 filter and a dual 60 filter for the rear of the cabinet though. HAF cases are REALLY good for airflow. That means you'll be taking in dust in all the uncovered spots. You really don't need HDD venting or front 5.25 panel venting so I would suggest taping off any place needless air can get in. The plates are easily taped off any place you don't have a drive or controller. Keeps the light in the case too. The kit contains three 200/230 filters, Front Intake filter and bottom PSU/120 filter.



@ldlw... "I see said the blind man as he picked up his hammer and saw; then tripped over the sawhorse his wife left behind him." Looks good bro. You painted the grills too or are they still black?
