another question for the owners with the two intake fans in the front visible (removed dust filter): how about the dust coming in ? Too much ?
Did you install any additional mesh filter or you only have the honeycomb-like in the front ?

That one really depends on how much dust you have in your home and how often you clean your case. If you're worried, there are dust filters that can be mounted directly to fans, so you could have the dustfilters inside your case screwed on your intake fans.

The amount of dust you will collect on the filters, will depend a great deal
on how balanced your cases positive or negitive pressure works out. If you've
come close to having fans pushing in.....as well as the same amount pushing out =
you might not experience a severe dust issue. From the exterior, you can simply vacume
off the filters and any other areas dust is visable. Taking those fans off by unscrewing um.....is
a pain. Vacume works just fine

I'm looking for a case to house a Gene-Z mATX build and I'm torn between the Arc Mini and Midi. The mini was obviously built to house my components, but I like having the flexibility to swap a full size motherboard in for a future upgrade... even if it does seem like a very big case.

Has anyone installed a mATX motherboard in a midi? Any thoughts?
post #1100 of 16138
The only problem i can see is the front panel connectors but even then, just run them behind the motherboard tray, through the cpu plate cut-out and under the motherboard and itll be just as neat thumb.gif
