Has anyone here with the Arc Midi removed the top filter completely? I just checked mine and it was full of dust. (i exhaust through the top). I figured the filter was just trapping dust inside my case and reducing airflow. Also, how do you guys have your fans set up? I bought a bottom and side fan, both intake along with the front. Top and back are exhaust.

If you exhaust through the top I see no reason you would need filters there. I personally don't like the filters that came with it at all, they will be going away.

I did the front and top filter removal mod as well- made me fall in love again with the case for now. Was thinking of going ITX but I would lose so much...

Would there be any downside to just removing the filter completely vs cutting a hole in it? I would like to avoid doing anything that can't be undone.

EDIT: Also want to add that this case is awesome. Easily worth the money.
