Home Made Fan Filters

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Well it seems i'm cleaning my computer a lot from dust,then i remembered i had some foam that came with some motherboards.As you can see from the pics,they work perfect.Also they really don't restricted the air that much,Only thing is the one i have on the side.Is when i turn computer off it falls off,So i have to put filter back in place when computer is on.lol

Pantyhose do work well so I 2nd this. The only issue I had was they almost worked too good and clogged up rather fast but that depends on how dusty your house is.
