You can use the provided filters.And yes the fans are very easy to replace.

You can easily replace the fan while still using the same filter. The only filters I see on mine is in the front of the case and for the power supply fan and the rest doesn't have a filter.

so theres only a filter on the one front fan..and then theres bottom air filter

can filters be added to the 2 top fans and one rear fan? when i replace them

So far as adding more fan filters is concerned; When there's a will, there's a way! :thumbsupsAs far as I know, there isn't a "Snap-On" friendly apparatus for fan filters on either the top or rear fans. However, this is not necessarily a bad thing ...

For proper chassis air cooling, there needs to be a "flow" of air from one end to the other. So, the standard configuration of fans/air movements for a chassis like the Lancool PC-k62 yields air in from the front 140mm and out through the top 140mm x2 and the rear 120mm.

Dust in a chassis is not Your friend, of course, and prevention is in my opinion the best way to fight the dust bunnies. However, air filters for the exhaust fans are not nearly as needed (if needed at all?) as air moving within the case should be pretty free of debriz from the intake filters. Moreover, air moves out of the case through the top and rear (in the default chassis configuration), and adding filters in these locations will only produce purer air leaving the chassis . . . pumped out into the office desk / tower of empty Mt Dew cans.

thats right im a little out of it i forgot those are exhaust so it really wouldnt be needed there

is the one intake fan in this case with the exhaust fans enough for cooling with no overclocking
post #10 of 19
Whua?

No Overclock? To each their own.

There are many of us who have either owned or are just shy of owning this case that have asked the "if's" and "how's" to adding a 2nd 140mm/120mm front intake fan (in the 5.25" bays).

I suggest not worrying too much about adding a 2nd intake fan if You are not too concerned with overclocking (yet). It may be more misc than You would be willing to put into it. The chassis' cooling with the stock configuration will be more than enough for Your cooling needs.

And, don't sweat the "not oc'ing" too much. I will be leaving mine stock.
