Cooler Master 690 II Advanced Front Filters......

post #1 of 58
Thread Starter 
How are you owners of these cases actually cleaning out these filters as they are permanently attached to the front panel assembly?

I see that blowing them out is not really advantageous.

A side note: As far as this case has possibly taught me = My first black interior case and possibly my last too as I see dust particles easily in every nook and cranny compared to a "grayish/silver" interior and much more upkeep just to keep it presentable to my standards.

I don't actually own that case but I use a vacuum cleaner to clean 'em, fast and easy.

Doesnt only apply to this case, several others (such as mine) have the same problem and this solution is the best i've found

I vacuum the front and top (seems to work better for me having the top as an intake).

Job done, the positive air pressure stops dust from getting in the cracks and the 6950 seems to like it, a lot less dust inside to worry about too.

Remove the front panel assembly and take it out, then clean it. I've done it before. There are plastic brackets and then screws holding them in. Easiest way though is just air blower/compressor in the yard.

I wouldn't want to do that once to twice a week in my scenario.

I just got the case and didn't have to do it yet but I would probably just take the front off and put it under the sink

I went further and hosed it down in my backyard, then let it dry. It looks the same as the day I took it out of the box.

This is what I've been doing as a vacuum cleaner or trying to blow it out still doesn't clean it right.

I almost want to take the front panel apart and totally take out the main filter.

I'm having partially the same problem with the top panel where 2 140mm fans are right now blowing outward I still have a small dust accumulation there.

My HAF 912 though I have to take off the side panels is easier overall to clean as well as the interior looking clean because it's not painted black to see particles of dust.

I don't have the window so don't see any dust
