As is having power and reset button on the mobo
1st cleanup of filters ==> whole PC out to get to the bottom one ==> never again ==> dremel time!Define R4, bottom filter front removal:
All masked, I mean everything on the bottom and sides and bottom inside since PC was in the case, only back was open. Every tiny hole masked, piece of plastic underneath in the bottom fan hole since cutting through tape is instant and the plastic also stands a little more far from the cut.
The metal tab is already cut in this picture, you can see the shiny cut. It was funny cutting it, it's not slow at all, then the vacuum cleaner sucked the metal tab as I cut it lol. The preparation time and cleaning is the most time consuming part.
Of course I had to make slots in the bottom front feet, could have made them a couple mm smaller, rather added a bit originally to avoid having to cut twice since it's hard to measure and cut precisely.
Works like a charm.
Obviously it won't reach the PSU fan unless you mod/prolong the filter with something. I don't use PSU fan = PSU runs always passive for me, don't need to mod the filter.
Maybe I should call it Define R4.5 now Edited by JackCY - 12/22/14 at 1:46pm
