No matter how often I vacuum, have an air cleaner running or keep my window shut, my room is dusty. I tried (3) 120mm fan filters to sit on the top but due to the shape of the opening, they don't fit. As it is now, I simply put magazines on top to cover the openings when the computer is shut down.
BTW, I have the tops as exhaust.
I used to use magnetic filters from Silverstone. They worked nicely.
Just pull them off when you are using the system.
Of course, magazines/newspapers work just as well, and are dirt cheap.
If you have the old air vents in your room, or have a cold air/heat exchange, perhaps you should filter that as well.
Most furnaces have some type of filtering system, that you can clean out every so often and can help eliminate a lot of dust that might pump through your home's ventillation.
3M also makes filters for floor vents... never tried them on a computer, but I've seen people use their car's micron air filters on their computer's intake.
Keeps them dust free, and are relatively cheap.
