I'll be getting a MicroRes and probably stick it to the top of the case and drill a hole in the top for a fill port.
And I see you're a new member, welcome to the forum biggrin.gif

Yeah man hope you do and go one:)

i think removing the front filter is not worth it at all. It's there on purpose to filter the dust sucked in by the front intake and ppl who remove them will just end up with a dustier chassis. The only justification is when it goes with the whole style concept of the build like the one done by mnpctech, which i posted earlier.

I like the look of having the fans on show and hated the look when the filters started to get dusty and 2 rings formed on the filter. But i also hate dust build-up. So what i did was install more free flowing filters on the inside of the fans, problem solved:)

Smart idea.

I honestly don't mind taking filters off since I give my rigs a good dusting every other week.

you're right but you would still have to clean the inside filters, which is harder then to clean the front one especially if there's a lot of parts and wires inside the case or a full vc loop for example and the side panel is on. plus so many people do that(remove the fron mech, that it became kinda boring and obvious to do)

Like most things, its personal choice. More a sugestion to people who want to do the same.

I see your point about them being harder to clean, but because of where my PC is, opening it up to blow out the filters is not a problem.

I removed the filter and use two magnetic filters on the front. it's a bit easier to clean that way. and I can take them off situationally.

Well my case is completely stripped off and ready for powder coating.

I'll be doing the main case and panels gloss white, the rear PCI brackets red, but I'm stuck on what to do for the front. It will be too hard to match the gloss white powder coat with a white paint on the plastic so I'm pretty much stuck doing the front main bezel in red, but should I do the mesh covers in red as well, or do them in gloss white?

Shouldn't be too hard to match glass white, could always spray some spare plastic scraps to get an idea first then go from there tongue.gif

But if you do decide red, I would personally do the mesh white just so the red isn't overly dominant.
post #1990 of 15844
axipher's correct , white is prolly one of the hardest colors to properly match.

If it ain't the exact "spec" paint.....it'll look nasty
