I've had two R5s(which is basically same as define s) and there was no dust whatsoever over a year of using no matter what fan configuration I had( one was 3 intake fans on front on a rad, two exhaust fans on rad up top, other one 2 front intakes, 3 top exhaust and rear exhaust). R5 is one of the best designed cases in terms of ventilation, my temps inside the case were never much higher than ambient temp. R5 has got so much venting area thst you won't be able to make positive or negative presssure inside the case, to many vents all around the case.

I would guess that "no dust" is not a typical result for people. I'll be honest, I'm new to Fractal Design cases but I don't see them having a magic dust repelling design that nobody else has. And I don't really think positive pressure is possible in any measurable amount in any case. The whole point of having more intake fans than exhaust is to make sure that all the unfiltered passive venting in the case is used to exhaust the excess air from your intakes. With more exhaust fans you will be pulling unfiltered air passed the filters. If you have a relatively dust free environment then this won't matter much. I don't think this is the case for most people though.

definitely it depends on where you live.
I live in the UK, literally 500 metres from sea so humidity is crazy all year long. However, I had Nzxt s300 some time ago and one month was enough to dust everything inside the case.
You can say case is a case, all built very similar but it's details that makes difference. For some reason R5 is one of the "coolest" cases, despite being just another case.

Cool thanks for the info. I don't have too many issues with dust so I'll just leave it as is for now. thumb.gif

With all this talk of dust, filters, and vacuum cleaners I feel the urge once again to post what I use.

DATAVAC FTW!

I haven't bought canned air in a decade!

So you own a DataVac and an Arc Mini R2, you've got good taste. thumb.gif

Lol, I think I have to agree.
